I love the fact that Fran is doing so much to help educate & teach women about how to help themselves. I have lost two aunts with breast cancer and if they had the right information & group to help them they would still be with us. As a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant,we are very much into finding a cure as well as helping to educate women about breast cancer. This a acuse that's very dear to my heart, and if there's any way I can help, I'm all in. Let's support this group and the cause. Thank you Fran!!! Nichole Clinton

I may very well be the first and only person from the male perspective writing a review of the organization, so I better make this a good and through one. After October 2008 and my girlfriend's mother finishing her battle with cancer, of which it was her second bout, I had read or overheard someone talk of the organization, somewhere and somehow. I can't put my finger on the source, but the name naturally got got stuck in my head (It's a catchy one). After checking on what Cancer Schmancer essentially was, I was impressed. So, quite naturally, when I came across one of those search engines on the internet that donate money to your charity of choice per your usage of the site, that's when I began my relationship with Cancer Schmancer. The official word is that, as of today, we have raised over $30 for the organization, with almost $10 of that having been donated just this year. We won't have it with someone offering a disservice and calling that amount insignifcant. In charity, no amount is too small! Believe it! And the bottom line is that there's no one who could have started this movement except Fran. One woman's vision and all of our actions are helping people in a major way.

The organization has an offensive stance on cancer, offering preventative care, which is as important as other charities' medical research to overcome the disease.

I first learned about this organization when I was diagnosed with cancer. Fran Drescher's book about her life and experience with cancer was given to me to inspire me through my own fight with cancer. Since then I have learned more about the foundation and I whole-heartedly endorse its mission of empowering women and the women we love to listen to our bodies, ask the right questions of our doctors and seek second opinions.

The Great!

Fran Drescher is an example to women everywhere and to me personally on how to take control of your own health. She has used her experience to teach others how to move forward during a time of personal tragedy.

This organization has opened up my eyes on cancer and the key to early detection. Every woman should be entitled for a checkup and every woman should be able to get an early detection. This movement continues to grow and now promotes the youth to become involved and aware of the various cancers out there. Nothing but praise to Fran and her team for promoting and making a change with the Cancer Schmancer movement.

I am now cancer free after five years. I had breast cancer. Cancer Schmancer has been a breath of fresh air in my life. Fran is a wonderful role model of moving into action and finding humor in the midst of a horrid disease. The foundation provides information and education. Watching Fran at work helped me to get inspired again after cancer. Just the name Cancer Schmancer...brings smiles to me and anyone I mention it to. Laughter helps us heal in and through cancer..... and this foundation with Fran at the head leads the way. I fill myself with laughter when I watch her show or hear about her good works. Humor has helped me heal quicker after cancer. Thank you Fran Drescher for leading the way of humor through the rough journey of cancer.

The Great!

Hi, my name is Angela Brugetta. My grandmother died of ovarian cancer. I took care of her until she closed her eyes. She was so strong.She battled it for quite a few years. And most heartfelt memory was when my cousin called me this particular morning and said to hurry, she said, nanny is calling your name!!! There was a snow storm, very bad, me, my husband at the time, and my son, 4 then, walked from one side of the park, thru the park, onto the street where the house was. I ran upstairs to her, and I said, nanny I am here now...she forced and I mean forced her right eye open and looked directly at me with 1 tear coming down her face, and I told her how much I loved her and that I wasn't leaving. I held her hand and she passed around 10 minutes later. Well, that is something I will NEVER forget. I love her so much, my 2nd mother. RIP NANNY...IF YOU CAN HELP SOMEONE FIGHT THIS HORRIBLE DISEASE, EVEN JUST TO SPEND TIME WITH THEM..IT IS SO WORTH IT. Right now I take care of my mother who is bedridden. But if I could, I would help anyone with their battle. Love helps.

As a future physician and breast cancer survivor, I'd like to give my wholehearted endorsement for Cancer Schmancer. This foundation's work focuses on the most important aspect of cancer treatment: early detection. In almost all women's cancers, a Stage 1 diagnosis ensures a healthy prognosis of survival. In other words, a bright future. The chance to spend a lifetime with a loved one or to see children grow up. I was one of those fortunate women who got diagnosed early, and because I know how incredibly wonderful it is to make a full recovery, I support and believe in Fran Drescher and her team. They want to make sure that every woman gets this opportunity by raising awareness and lobbying for increased funding and improvements in women's health, both on state and federal level. For this reason, I urge everyone to support their cause in any possible way.

The Great!

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

positive media reviews, successful community events, and national recognition for their contribution.

Ways to make it better...

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

still hand over the reigns to Ms. Drescher, because she's clearly already doing a great job without my help!

More feedback...

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

the way they use social media to build meaningful relationships with supporters, donors, and volunteers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

energetic, motivating, knowledgeable, and very sincere.

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

do so much more to reach more women and provide better resources.

Ways to make it better...

I had never been diagnosed with cancer. But, obviously, life handed me that lemon, and for others like me, Cancer Schmancer is an indispensable resource on the road to recovery.

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

lack of funding and support structures to fully address all the important issues.

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

it only takes one person to stand up and say, "I want to make a difference." That person is Fran Drescher and I would like to express my utmost respect for her willingness and hard work.

As a two year breast cancer survivor, I have made it my mission to make women aware of how important early detection is. CSF hits this message head on. I look forward to watching this foundation flourish and as we work towards a cure for all cancers.
