I have been a board member of the Mission of Hope Cancer Fund for the past 8 years. During this time I have lost a few relatives to cancer. Our family has been fortunate enough to have had insurance and financial strength to weather the storm but there are many many families who cannot. I have witnessed first hand the gratitude of affected families who we have been able to help. Through our founders financial help and more importantly first hand compassion, cancer patients have been able to continue treatment and keep a positive attitude in their fight against a horrible affliction.
I have been a board member for 16 yrs & have witnessed the committment & personal sacrifice of the founder/cancer survivor in assisting the clients of the Mission of Hope Cancer Fund.
There is a real need out there for direct financial assistance to cancer patients & their families.
My name is Bill and I am on the board of trustees here at the Mission of Hope Cancer Fund in Michigan. I am proud to be part of the organization. A while back there was an individual from Social Actions (www.socialactions.com) who expressed concern with our financials. I, and the executive director of our organization have met with this individual and have cleared up the MIS UNDERSTANDING. We appreciated the concern and are glad that we were able to clear up the situation. It was nice to meet with a representative from Social Actions and clear up the mis understanding. BILL NURMI
