Not sure how effective this website is in reaching out to others, but am extremely disappointed with this organization. They were contacted several months about giving them a donation and spoke with someone named "Gail" or "Glenda" only to never hear back from her again. There was a woman who answered the front desk phone and gave us one excuse after another of Gail/Glenda's whereabouts. Dozens of messages and phone numbers were left with the front desk woman (who could hardly speak English) and on their automated answering machine and still not one call was made back to us. We have a large donation with a guarantee of lifetime healing and they obviously don't want it and are cowards to even call us back.
I am hoping to get local and state government involved to shut them down.
