National Children's Cancer Society, Inc.

Rating: 3 stars   4 reviews

Issues: Health, Cancer

Location: One South Memorial Drive Suite 800 St. Louis MO 63102 USA

Mission: The National Children's Cancer Society seeks to improve a child's chance of surviving cancer by providing direct financial aid and emotional support to children with cancer and their families. We believe that children with cancer will receive the most consistent medical care when their parents can focus on them, rather than the additional burdens caused by cancer. Financial aid includes assistance with lodging, meals, long distance phone calls, transportation, child care, rent, mortgage, etc. Families are required only to show that they have financial need during their child's treatment, regardless of their ability to pay before the child's diagnosis.

For years my 86 year old mother in law has donated to this charity. Being a 3 time cancer survivor she thought that helping others would help her. For the last 3 years of her life she battled dementia and several other health issues. We repeatedly asked this organization to remove her from their list and they refused or forgot or something. When they called and we answered the phone they would ask for her and refuse to leave a message. Only when she answered would they go into the sales pitch and eventually be promised a donation. I have attempted to call the 800 number on the donation slip and it is always busy. I have now resorted to emailing them to remove her from their list. I hope having this written documentation of my contact will quiet the phone calls from this company.
