In December 2009 my daughter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. After seven rounds of chemo therapy, she was not improving and was referred to the City of Hope for a bone marrow transplant. The transplant took and my daughter is now in remission, however the cost of the transplant, pre-transplant chemo and radiation, follow up doctor's visits, and over 35 different medications, along with the previous four hospital stays and chemo treatments was astronomical. NFT assisted us with ways to raise money to pay out of pocket expenses, co-pays, medications not covered by insurance, and transportation and housing. NFT assisted us every step of the way, but supplying a tax free format for donations to be submitted and managed. They also provide hundreds of ideas on campaigns to raise money, and assist with the banners, provide preformatted letters to buisnesses, and private parties, and are their to encourage you along the way. In only five months my team of volunteers has raised over $30,000 to assist my daughter in paying her medical and pharmacy bills.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

in fund raising.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have a local chapter.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the leadership and training needed to succeed in our fund raising campaign.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

sincere, patient, and well informed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help thousands upon thousands of transplant recipients, and those waiting for transplants, pay their medical, prescription, housing, and transportation costs.

Ways to make it better...

the there was a local chapter in California.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the word out of their existance and the type of patients they assist.

One thing I'd also say is that...

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
