As a mother of a childhood cancer survivor I know first hand the hardships families are faced with in traveling to get care for their child. I am proud to be on the Board of Directors of Compass to Care to help other families like ours who need help with traveling expenses. The families are so thankful for our help as it is one thing they do not have to worry about and can focus on a cure for their child.

I write this review on the day I am celebrating my 26th year as a cancer survivor. Through the great work of Compass to Care, I am able to give back - give children the same opportunity I had as a kid with cancer to have a chance at life.

As a child I was lucky to live close enough to a
hospital that was capable of treating my rare form of cancer. Most children aren't as lucky, but they deserve the same opportunity and chance to beat the disease as I did. Compass to Care provides that opportunity. They help children and their families with the means to get to the hospital deemed necessary to save their life. I am honored to be part of this amazing organization. I am honored to do my part to support children with their family on the life-saving journey.

I have been on the Board of Directors for Compass to Care as the Treasurer since inception. When I first was told of the idea of Compass To Care, I had no idea the magnitude of the financial problems these families face trying to cure their child of cancer. The founder, Michelle, had a dream to give back to families that are going through the same devastation her family went through when she had cancer as a very young child. Although I was around as our family was traveling back and foth to Mayo Clinic, I was too young to really understand the magnitude of how it affected us financially. Michelle took her idea of Compass to Care and ran with it. Within months she had received her 501(c)3 and left Corporate America. Michelle has done such a tremendous job of forming a connection with each and every family. Not only does she make sure the family is paid in time for their next trip, she has taken a direct interest in each and every child. I have never seen someone take on a project like Compass To Care with such determination and passion. Sometimes it seems not only is the foundation a means to making travel plans met for these struggling families, but also an individual cheering squad for each child. I am proud to be a part of Compass To Care.
