The Great Guys Group is a bonafide group of great individuals who do the most amazing and kindest acts for those whose lives are impacted by cancer. On the most challenging day this week, which was even more challenging because of the emotional tidal wave I experienced due to the death of one of my breast friends the week prior, I came home to the most amazing transformation of my front lawn. Just 3 days before my mastectomy two months ago, my previously well-manicured lawn was completed decimated and had a backhoe resting in it which was used to repair a broken water service line. The expensive repair bill was almost $7,000 and sadly did not cover the cost of re-landscaping the lawn. So, I had a war-torn lawn, a war torn wallet and a war torn body, all at the same time.

Great Guys to the rescue! They may have been out of funding, but they were not out of people who care. A professional landscaper came out and gave me hope because the landscaper made it better than it ever was.... all I have to do is water it and watch it grow. (Incidentally, I put a single solar light in the center of my lawn to remember my breast friend who passed away from breast cancer last week.)I don’t know how or where the Great Guys Group finds its great gals and guys who volunteer to do these wonderful acts of kindness, but I can’t wait to become a great gal so that I can do some amazing things for someone else through the Great Guys Group. Hey, maybe THAT’s how they do it? They help someone who comes back to them when they are in better health and that person helps someone else! They may certainly count on me. I was overjoyed and overwhelmed and I am all in! THANKS GREAT GUYS GROUP. I’ll see you soon.

The Great Guys Group is a group of genuinely Great Guys (and gals). I can't say enough good and wonderful things about this organization. They were there for me at a time when no one else was and I was trying to believe I could find a hero. Every day I thank God for these wonderful people and I would do whatever I can to help them in their mission.

The past year has been a horrific experience... two close friends with children stricken with cancer... one age 2, the other age 5. As much as I wanted to help my friends, I knew of NOTHING I could do for these people that would impact their situations until I spoke to the GREAT GUYS. Great Guys help alleviate the pressures of things I never would have thought about... paying monthly bills, taking care of things around the home while the families tend to their most urgent issue... in these cases, their children's health. Thank you GREAT GUYS for helping my friends!

I'm not the 'direct' recipient of your help, but your organization came to the aid of my neighbor at my request. I was searching for ANY way to help a family friend that had received a cancer diagnosis. I spoke to Paul Isenberg and he simply said, "nominate them on our website". I didn't know any of my neighbor's financial constraints, but Great Guys started making phone calls to see where they could help. Not long after, that neighbor told me that Great Guys came at just the right time. I LOVE what you do and pray for your continued success in doing it.

My name is Joyce and my husband, Jason was diagnosed with NHL June of 2009 at age 34. The news that a loved one has cancer, is devastating and feels like your world is crashing. Suddenly, it becomes a domino effect and everything starts crashing down on you. So many doctor appointments, co-pays, specialists, tests, medicines, taking off of work, and the bills kept comming. Paul came to the rescue and Great Guys helped at a much needed time. Paul knows how reluctant I am to get help, but I honestly don't know how my family could do it without this wonderful organization. It is so amazing how much people care, and saying "thank you" is not enough. I truly hope everyone knows how greatful my family is for all of your help.

Hello, My name is Victoria McIntosh and I want everyone to know that Mika and The Great Guys are sent from heaven. They helped my family and they were there for us all the way. Mika is so caring, funny and so down to earth (thank you)She makes you feel better about a bad situation. I can only hope she feels the strong thankfulness & how great full I am for the work that she does. If there comes I time when I come into a lot of money they will be the first organization I will donate to, so that they can continue to help others just like they helped my family. God Bless The Great Guys. Love, The McIntosh's Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

They were there for my family with open arms and I do believe things happen for a reason whether they are good or bad, it always leads to something in the long run even if we don't understand at that time. God Bless all of you.

My name is jason i am a 29 year old male from pa. I was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. I am unable to work and the burden of my bills were starting to take their toll on me and I was almost on the verge of losing faith thats when an angel called me her name was mika. She talked to me and helped me through one of the darkest times in my life. Most people take for granted the fact they are able to work and pay bills without needing help from people and I was one of those people until I got sick. thats when the great guys group stepped in and paid my rent for me. Somethink its just rent but when its u going through it everything changes and life and people become even more precious. So from the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you this is one of the best organizations out there and I believe they are messangers of god willing to do anything to help people who are afflicted with cancer.

When my wife of twenty three years (and mother of our five daughters) was diagnosed with colon cancer several years ago, I was well aware of the potential financial devistation that cancer can inflict on a family. Having been in the insurance business at the time, I actually sold cancer insurance to my clients. In my case, my own cancer insurance had lasped as a "luxury", so when my wife was diagnosed and started her ordeal, I knew that it was going to be a rough time. Losing half of the family income while my wife was going through surgeries and weekly chemo treatments, I also had a significant loss of income by taking time off from work to be with her, take her to appointments, meet with doctors and be home as much as possible. As her treatments continued and our personal expensescontinued to mount (both medical and non medical), the anxiety and reality of being unable to pay for essentials such as electricity, mortgage, food, etc was one more anxiety on top of the overall anxiety of hoping for my wife's recovery. I tried my best to insulate my children from our plight, but personally I knew we were in dire financial straights. It was at that time that I was blessed to have been introduced to Great Guys Group and their charitable help to familiy's like mine that were going through similar misfortune. After learning about my specific case; with little hesitation or fanfare, they provided much needed funds to help us overcome the financial burden that we faced. Those funds went directly to pay the bills that I was so afraid I could not pay. Without their help, I don't really know what we would have done. They literally were a God send and I am forever indebted to this organization. To Mika and Paul and those who run this charity, thank you so much for unselfishly helping those who are truly in need, at a time when the potential loss of a partner or parent is compounded by the financial trials that mediacl trauma brings. My wife and family and I will never forget your generosity. Thank you for what you do . . . .

The Great Guys are an organization that assist families of cancer patients that are in financial need. It is simply amazing that they give so much more that just that to us even now. It has been almost four years now and I still feel their love wrapped around my family.
