I must say that I love what Fran Drescher has done for cancer patients. I am a HPV ambassador, but I have been faced with cancer. Fran's words of wisdom and inspiration. Cancer Schmancer is a great cause and I think they need recognition. Fran is the best!

In this state of economy today, affordable healthcare is non-existent, especially if you are lower income. I use to have insurance & a job & didn't know that I would be laid off & not be elgible for insurance until my unemployment ran out. Finally "elgible" for state healthcare, I finally made my screening appt. that I had put off for 2 years...only to be dropped the next month to system errors & have no coverage. At least I got my screening & thank God no issues...but what if??? Every women should have the right to be screened yearly, it may save her life!!! Thank you for your program!!! Let's help it grow state-wide!!!!

I have survived cervical cancer. I thankfully had non-cancerous fibroids on my uterus resulting in a hysterectomy. Thank goodness for Cancer Schmancer. I was able to get information in layman's terms and it helped me feel calm. I have a wonderful OBGyn and when I have any concerns, I go to this website first to make sure I have the information I need to ask the right questions. Asking the right questions helps me and my doctor. I feel empowered by going to the site. Most women don't feel right asking questions until it is too late. Raising awareness of this site might help women feel more confident when going to their doctor.

As I stated in my review above, I have had the direct result of being able to speak with my doctor in a more thorough and direct manner. I really like my OBGyn - but I know it is essential not to take everything at face value and to take time to understand everything we talk about. I don't know if I could have done that without Cancer Schmancer.

It might be good to have a place for doctors. It is frustrating that the medical profession knows that women are different than men, but still treat us the same. The most current information could be provided. Also, I realize that doctor's are on a short time frame, but they should offer to schedule a longer time to discuss more serious conditions. It could be a reminder how to discuss major decisions that need to be made (e.g. - should the ovaries be removed during a hysterectomy).

I am a 2x breast cancer survivor and former director of the American Cancer Society Patient Navigator Program in NYC. I have two blogs for women with breast and other female cancers. I have reached out to Cancer Schmancer on a few occasions looking for statistics on female cancers for posts i was developing and for resource referrals for my readers.

Each time I contacted this organization I received the help I needed. Everyone I spoke to or emailed was generous with their time and more than willing to help.

When I first discovered Cancer Schmancer I thought it would be just like all the rest of the orgaanizations in the world, but the people running Cancer Schamancer are actual survivors and care about all the persons who donate and join, and they really do try and make a difference in the world of women's health care. These women know exactly what your talking about, they can actually give you answers to your questions from experience, and support you through it all. They educate us for our own benifits. If I could do more for this organization I sure would! I love how open everyone is and how you get that home like feeling when talking to someone about something. it truly is a magnificent organization that really has made a change in Women's Health Care today!

Cancer Schmancer is dedicated to educating women about early detection. I wish such an open organization existed when I was younger. When I had my first brush with a possible cancer diagnosis, I was shocked. I was unprepared and overwhelmed. While I was breaking down emotionally, I was scrambling to find answers to the many questions I had. Cancer Schmancer provides information and support during these difficult times. Preparation, knowledge, and support are key.
