Fortunately, I have had the opportunity to witness & participate in a few local Great Guys events. Even with such limited exposure, I have found the positive spirits and authentic caring of the group to be blatantly obvious. The GGG spirit is infectious; it’s no wonder they’re growing a such a rapid pace.

This organization is dedicated to bettering the lives of those around them. I’ve seen them do so using creative and innovative fundraising techniques such as beach parties, sports outings, dinners and more. With such a genuine group of workers committed to their cause, GGG continued growth is inevitable. Given the legacy of their past, I look forward to seeing the big things that GGG will deliver in years to come.

GGG comes highly recommended.

I have been involved with Great Guys Group for a little over a year and have watched a small nonprofit grow more than i could ever imagine. Very few people think about bills or personal finances when thinking of the hardships of those affected by cancer. But GGG takes something so simple and turns it into hope and strength by just keeping these families afloat in regards to the last things they're able to worry about, like phone bills, water bills, simple maintenance issues, etc. As the daughter of a cancer survivor, I saw the distress and struggles cancer can bring to the individual, their family and friends. Having your personal finances as an additional stress is a hardship that shouldn't be affecting these patients. GGG is doing an amazing job and bringing hope back to those who have lost it! :)

The Great Guys helped my friend Kim and her family when they needed it the most. Kim's family was stuggling financially due to her illness. She had Breast Cancer. I honestly don't know what they would have done without the help from the Great Guys. Since then I have volunteered for a few of their events to "give back" and to help them raise money for other families in need. The Great guys organization comes highly recommended. They are truly a "Great" non profit organization!

I learned about Great Guys Group about a year ago and I have even had the opportunity to volunteer at a few events. Great Guys Group (GGG) is an amazing organization unlike any other. Great Guys Group is a passionate and sensitive organization that helps people and families who deal with every day struggles because of cancer, most are things we forget about, like the mortgage, the electricity, the heat etc. Great Guys Group has helped so many people and families and I have had the amazing opportunity to meet and talk to some of the people whose lives have been changed and made easier thanks to GGG. A few months ago GGG celebrated their 10 year anniversary and I was so happy to volunteer at their annual dinner party. I was able to help behind the scenes but also meet some of the amazing Great Guys families. It is nothing short of amazing to meet patients and cry with them and hear stories that you can only imagine, but through GGG you can also cry happy tears with the patients and their families when you can see the relief and the happiness in their faces thanks to GGG. I am more than confident that GGG will continue to reach out and help millions of patients and families and I will continue to donate and volunteer with this amazing organization.

Great Guys Group is a wonderful organization! They are so dedicated to helping families deal with cancer. I volunteered at their Great Guys Dinner a few months ago and seeing all the sponsors and families come together was something really great. I admire them for all the work that they do and all the hard work they put forth to help families in need.

I learned about the Great Guys Group through my 2 GREAT friends Amy Forkin and Lauren Rubenstein, they are both my roommates and both work together in the GGG office. they have so much dedication to this organization and it's amazing to see how many families they are able to help. I volunteered for the GGG many times and I've always had a blast. I enjoy supporting an organization that gives back so much to families having trouble paying bills, it takes such a great weight off their shoulders when they are already dealing with a life threatening illness. To see how much joy GGG brings to families in need makes me want to be apart of it even more. The Great Guys Group is an amazing organization and deserves all the funding they can get.

I mentored a group of new PR professionals in creating a PR plan for GGG. The intensive research the team conducted to create the plan revealed a dynamic and purposeful group dedicated to helping patients and their families by providing monetary assistance during treatment. Paul Isenberg is a dynamic leader with a compassionate and caring team that truly do this for the love.

I know Paul Isenberg personally and the work he and his organization really is a godsend for cancer patients in need. I have cancer but am fortunate to not need great guys services but I need many fellow cancer patients who are not as fortunate as me. I have recommened some to Great Guys and they have given a new comfort level to someone who is really down and desperate. Cancer is a tough road without adding financial hardships . Great Guys is a unique charity organization.

As the daughter of a cancer survivor, I've seen the toll that cancer can take on an entire family. A feeling of helplessness can overcome even the strongest person and being unsure of who or what to turn to next is a scary feeling. I have had the honor and pleasure of working with the Great Guys Group for several months now. I've seen firsthand the impact that this organization has had on not only the families that they've helped, but on the surrounding community as well. Their compassion for those that they help is unlike anything I've ever seen before. Not only do they assist families financially, but they provide emotional support and most importantly hope to people who need it the most. Everyone involved with this organization is so passionate about their mission and truly gives from the heart. I feel so blessed to be around such amazing people and to work with such an inspiring organization.
