I have followed the efforts of Ms. Drescher and this organization as they fight to ensure that more women are diagnosed in the early stages of cancer. In addition to raising funds for research and care of patients, they have presented information and campaigned in front of Congress for legislative and monetary support. Early cancer diagnosis and treatment will not only save lives, it will save many thousands of dollars and enable thousands of families to live long and happy lives together.

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).

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.

Cancer Schmancer Foundation is an important organization for both survivors, family and current patients. It is great to have such a group of people who seriously care about what they believe in and back it up daily.
Thanks for all you do for each individual affected by your touch.

i lost my whole family to cancer, then was told i had it too.
i went into shock, not only is my family gone, but would i die too? Alone?
No kids, they told me i needed a hysterectomy immediately.
i tried so hard to fight, but the cancer was beating me, so i had to make the choice to
have the surgery,no family for me, but i did get to live, I did get to help spread the word about early detection and a wonderful organization such as "Cancer Schmancer"
I even had a party when i got better , we raised almost 500 for the cause, i even wrote Cancer schmancer" on my cake :)
I could have died, many people have, the ONLY reason i am still alive today is due to early detection

I have been overwhelmed by the heartfelt sense of community I've come to enjoy from getting to know the Cancer Schmancer website and the many people who run it. When I get on there and read the other survivor stories, I feel like I haven't lost my mom, but I've somehow gained hundreds of friends who help me turn around my loss into something important and meaningful. Thank you, CS.
