My name is Mark. I have been working with The Cure Is Now for years now. I walk around and pick up donation canisters. I think The Cure Is Now is on to something big. Everyone who I work with is such a pleasure to spend my days with.

This organization looks at the big picture. It is not just interested in Regenerative Medicine. They look at technology as the tool that will help us reach great things as a species. They do not act like middle men. They are doing what no other organization is doing at this time.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Change the resources available to them.

I don't know what the point of this group is. If their chief science officer is Aubrey De Grey, then i think it would just bet better to give to his charity and cut out the middleman, lol.

I still am trying to thoroughly learn about knowing the organization, but they're mission statement is what I'm about. I like the idea that they aren't just about fixing one disease, but that they are looking for the source of many. I'm also interested that they are very much involved with the community being informed. I think that many organizations state that they just want to end a disease but aren't really informative. The Cure is Now is more like a out reach program with preventative measures and that's pretty cool for an organization to look out for you.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Bring the organizations to schools. Kids should learn about these things before hand.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Likely

I first became aware of The Cure Is Now when I noticed a pink and white donation canister on the counter of one of my favorite deli's in the Bronx. As I continued my day to day routine of traveling around the city, I began to notice these canisters everywhere! For that reason I began researching this organization. I became intrigued with their long term goals, one which includes building a super laboratory, which would run 24/7. I agree with there philosophy that laboratory efficiency is dramatically increased when everything a scientist might need to do, from performing tests and getting results, can all happen under the same roof. What this means is no more waiting for lab results, or waiting for someones next shift to start. The Cure Is Now is reaching for the stars, and with your help, their goals can become tomorrow's reality.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change anything.

According to the documents on their own website, only 5% of money spent went towards the research they claim to support. That's pathetic. There are much better places to donate your money.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Disband it. It simply doesn't fill a gap not already filled by many other better charities.
