I have loved being involved with Cancer Schmancer! Helping out the WE THE FUTURE youth branch of this organization has been very rewarding because it has allowed me to spread the news about the importance of early detection and prevention to young people everywhere. I have enjoyed hearing the inspiring stories of people who have fought cancer or who know someone with cancer as well because there are so many brave people out there giving cancer everything they have got to get rid of it for good! Who doesn't want that?

The Great!

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

Inspiration. Through the stories of members I have learned a lot about the importance of family, friends, and support through tough times as well as how valueable life is.

I can't think of anything to change except maybe that it would have more money to do even more than it is doing already

I'm a 20 year old girl from Puerto Rico. I started to be part in this movement when I was 17 years old. I must say, that I found the Cancer Schmancer Movement by accident, via Internet. I had the book and one day I began to search for a way to contact the author: Fran Drescher, but instead of finding what I wanted, I found the movement. This movement has changed my life in many ways. Even though I can't donate money to it, I have been supporting it and helping them to have more awareness.
I have many family members who had died of cancer, but recently in family, we are going through a hard situation. My aunt of 35 years old, has colon cancer, with a whole bunch of complications that makes things worse. The Treatments seems to not be working at all. Only a miracle and the power of God can do something. We are truly happy cause she still is alive by God's will and mercy.
Being part of this movement, has help me to realize the importance of having good health and helping others to achieve it. I'm also part of the sub-program they have for youth, called WE THE FUTURE! I have been helping them in many ways. Also did a volunteer work for them in the past months, in the advertisement area. Creating a "logo" for this program and being used by the staff. I love this program cause it gives me a chance to put my talents into challenge, for the better improvement of women's/ everyone/ lives.
It's truly an amazing organization. It has been helping millions of lives and it has been doing a great work worldwide. I been making it known here in Puerto Rico for the past years. For the past years, I been doing presentations, advertisement videos, telling testimonies and more, here at my college campus and when I used to be in High School. For me, it means a lot. I hope it continues to be an excellent source of help and prevention. I fully recommended. Besides being part of it, it has been my other family, even though I don't know them so much. Why? Easy, they watch out for my well being by educating me and others, how to have healthier lives. May God bless them and give the Cancer Schmancer Movement, more years to make changes in our lifestyles.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would consider to take it to other places, specially Puerto Rico. I would like to see this organization working on college campus here in Puerto Rico cause usually our youth doesn't care about the damage some things are making to our lives; not only our youth but everyone in general. I think it would be a good idea, to come and gives us speeches, meetings or more encouragement to those who are helping the movement in different ways, in person.

Ever since I was a child I have seen many family members loose the battle with cancer. I never really understood why there couldn't be anything done about it until I grew up and dug my heels into research and websites. When I was 18 I had received a phone call from my OB saying my PAP had come back with some abnormalities and I needed to schedule an appointment. Come to find out I was diagnosed with HPV at the time and needed to undergo Cryotherapy to freeze the abnormal cells off. Then I did not understand why I had to go through that procedure until it was explained to me that if I had gone without the treatment the abnormal cells could in fact develope into cervical cancer. Now 26 years old and free of abnormal cells due to the simple test of a PAP. Keep yourself protected by routine check ups with the OB and always remember ONLY you know your body, if there is something that doesn't seem right let your instincts guide you.

I am a recent addition to the Cancer Schmancer movement. I don't have any experiences as of yet except for my own situation mentioned above. I am looking forward to being a part of this movement to save the lives of women who don't know the ways to keep themselves protected against this.

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

recommend more public events state wide. I personally would like to see the walks for prevention and research. There are walks for lung and breast cancers but I WOULD LOVE to see Fran Drescher bring a walk to my area of the states! I know so many people who would be interested.

Cancer Schmancer's work is exceptional and unique. In addition to promoting health awareness, Cancer Schmancer is helping to provide underserved women with cancer screening tests. I volunteered for the Fran Van Early Detection program in New York and was impressed by its efficient provision of essential health services. There is an obvious need for affordable screening because many women walked by that day and stopped to arrange an appointment. Cancer Schmancer is saving lives by inspiring women to make healthy choices.

cancer schmancer is an amazing foundation. reading about cancer and about stage one being the cure and taught me much, and it is a life changing foundation. Fran Drescher has done a lot with this. she goes on walks for women with stage one of cancer, and really puts her all into it. I think that this foundation really deserves some recognition, because it is a WONDERFUL nonprofit organization.

I haven't been able to help with cancer yet because I am too young. But I did start reading the book. I wanted to read it to try and better understand the situation, and beacause Fran Drescher is one of my biggest role models. Though I am not finished with the book yet, I can say that it is one of the most captivating and well written books I have ever read! Miranda
