I have learned SO much through their website. It has also helped me to convey the importance of anual screening to my sisters-in-law. What anincredible source of information!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

getting my sisters-in-law to take their feminine health much more seriuosly than they have in the past.

Ways to make it better...

keep it just as it is.

I have not mt the staff, butgreatly admire Ms. Drescher!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

radically change the lives of MANY women

Ways to make it better...

they keep doing exactly what they are doing!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

future funding in our sinking economy.

One thing I'd also say is that...

if more people were as devoted as Ms. Drescher is the world would be a much better (and healthier) place to live!

I think this is an awesome organization because it is so real and a friend of mine found out that she had precancerous cells on her cervix about a year ago. She wouldn't have pushed about testing if she had not found out what tests to ask for without cancer schmancers site.

I haven't had the chance to participate in any functions, but I firmly believe in supporting a just cause. Celebrity endorsements or celebrity initiated causes can be a great way to draw attention to an issue. Despite my love of Fran Drescher's character and personality, I could not support this cause if I didn't believe wholeheartedly in the cause and her role in it. She's the perfect voice for such a movement and a fantastic inspiration for everyone. Fran updates on Facebook, Twitter and the Cancer Schmancer website consistently and frequently to share about the latest events, most recent news, and what's being done making it impossible to be out of the loop. This movement is so powerful yet still down to Earth that you feel like cancer detection in Stage 1 for everyone is an achievable and realistic goal. I only hope that at some point I can be a bigger part of the movement. With every fiber of my being, I'm proud to support Cancer Schmancer.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

through several stories of successful diagnosis of cancer in stage 1 because they heard the message of Cancer Schmancer.

Ways to make it better...

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

do my best, as Fran Drescher is, to coordinate events in varying cities, get the word out, and update on recent developments and success stories via social network sites as well as through traditional news media.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people who support the movement, an enigmatic personality in a spokesperson like Fran Drescher, and full faith that the mission of Cancer Schmancer can be realized.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have endless possibilities. It would support events in more locations, donations to research, possibly open clinics specializing in cancer detection that are available to anyone with or without medical coverage.

Ways to make it better...

there were events in my area or within driving distance. I would love to participate more, but finances prevent travel to the cities the events are mainly held in. If Cancer Schmancer never makes it down South, one day I will be able to make the trip.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

how to spread the word far and wide so that Cancer Schmancer becomes recognizable in every household, much like the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

One thing I'd also say is that...

cancer CAN be diagnosed in stage 1, and that this organization can help save the lives of innumerable amounts of people. Because Fran survived, it's impossible to know how many people whose lives she's responsible for saving by getting the word out.

No more feeling frightened of what might follow... the reality of Cancer sorrow. Not only a sense of comfort of ease, the Cancer Schmancer movement has given me the confidence to take control of my own life. Just knowing that the members are on my side, standing with me through the unknown holds such importance to me. My family and friends- with which without them I would be nothing- are being watched over as well. That sense of gratitude for that knows no boundaries. I am so thankful. Unfourtunately, we do not know when Cancer will show itself through the ones we care about or even ourselves. That is why I want to do everything I can possibly do to support Cancer Schmancer and bring awareness to everything this cause stands for. No more holding our breaths- scarred. Our lives' can change instantly when we are still trying to exhale. Fran- everyone behind Cancer Schmancer- you are my angels. We only have each other- and I know together, we can allow everyone to breath in comfort. Much Love, Jill Kruse

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Fran-members-supporters of Cancer Schmancer are a family. This family tackles cancer related issues head on- and not limiting efforts to one specific kind of cancer. Not only spreading facts- awareness, Can Sch gives us the love to take cancer down hard.

I had the opportunity to attend a Cancer Schmancer event in NYC. Having already visited the organization's site, I was already familiar with the general mission. However, meeting Fran and seeing her and her board's passion for this very important cause, has led me to recommend it to anyone interested in the issue of cancer. I'm one of the many who would have benefitted from early detection, however, that is still a pipe dream with my cancer (ovarian). Cancer Schmancer is working toward early detection for all cancers, and deserves our support.

The Great!

I am personaly a young teenaged girl who wanted to know more about the foundation and cancer it self. Fran and the staff took time from there day to help me learn more about cancer and the early warning signs of cancer.They were very imformative and enjoyed the people. Fran is such a postive person when she speaks. Everybody listens carefuly. Fran dosent treat you like a fan or just a member but she treats you like a friend that she knew for a long time.I have been to two events with her and she is filled with joy. It makes me happy that she didnt disclued me from anything, she imformed me she invited me to sit with her and her staff. She listened to every question that I personaly had for her.I always remember that when ever I see her she is greeting you with a smile.Cancer Schmancer has a great life long message,people,staff,information.Cancer Schmancer is a great Foundation.*Cancer is not the boss of me*- Fran Drescher!

Cancer Schmancer is all about fighting cancer in its beatable stage- stage 1. Patients need to learn the correct questions to ask and cancer schmancer helps with empowering the patient to take their health into their own hands.

Like Fran always says....everyone knows a woman that they have lost to cancer. I lost my very beloved aunt to ovarian cancer this past year. Hers was diagnosed in stage 3-4 and she spent the last 3 years of her life battling the disease. The goal of Cancer Schmancer is to diagnose everyone in stage 1.......if only my aunt had been diagnosed in stage 1! She would still be here today I am sure! She also would not have had to under go all the painful and life consuming treatments (not to mention costly) that she did to keep her alive the 3 years after her surgery. Thanks to Fran for taking her experience with cancer and doing something about it to help other people! Thanks to her and her organization more and more people will be aware of early warning signs of the disease! I, along with so many others, respect her and look up to her so much, that we are more likely to take her advice......to GO to doctors, to not accept when they might tell us that we are well when we know deep down something is wrong, to ask lots of questions, and get 2nd opinions! (Hopefully not 8 like she had to!) Thanks so much to Fran and Cancer Schmancer for educating women and working to reform our health care situation so that more women can LIVE from cancer like she did, not DIE from it.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

When Fran speaks, people listen! She is very influential and thanks to her people are becoming more educated and can actually believe that Cancer Schmancer's goal will one day be a reality!

Fran Drescher is a beautiful woman, through and through. She spends a lot of her time on this cause, leading the Walks, she encourages us to all listen to our bodies with style and grace! I firmly support this cause. So pass the word on about The Cancer Schmancer Foundation! Let's knock Cancer out!
