Being a Board Member of CAPPED has awarded me the opportunity to see, first hand, the tremendous work that is being done to support and help those in the community with cancer and other diseases. Tresa's outreach helps people of all ages, not only with the services offered but by educating. Tresa is pro-active in the Awareness and Prevention part of the name.

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

help extend it to other areas in New Mexico

It has been such an honor to be associated with CAPPED. My respect for Tresa and her vision grows with each year I work with her. CAPPED will continue to gain my respect and financial support for years to come. It is community based and every dollar stays in Alamogordo and does not go to executives' big salaries and large city agendas. CAPPED is well-known in Alamogordo and has lots of community support. Most children remember the Sun Safe Program from school and local parades, health fairs and community-sponsored events. Many have benefited from free mammograms and treatment if needed. From nutrition and cooking classes to the development of a Center for Integrative Health CAPPED has lead the way in Alamogordo for cancer prevention and early detection.

I became involved some years ago through the work of our Executive Director. The work performed by this small organization is far reaching and deals with more than just those who have cancer. We put strong emphasis on eliminating the causes of cancer. There are so many things that people can do to lesson the prevalence of cancer and the best place to start to learn of these things is right at CAPPED.

I promise you that my five star rating for CAPPED has nothing to do with my position on the board. It is the mission of the organization and the dedication of the volunteers that makes it successful.

As with any organization, it would be nice to be better funded, but one's heart is not found in how deep their pockets are.
