My daughter was diagnosed with ALL at age 17. NCCF has helped my family in many ways by providing counseling, emotional and financial assistance. They are a wonderful group that provides a much-needed service in Las Vegas. Camp Cartwheel is an experience both to attend and to volunteer at that is beyond expectations. We still support NCCF even though it has been almost 5 years since diagnosis and we have moved out of NV.

My child has benefited from this program In more then one way. When there weren't any other programs out there for my child condition they came through. They've given her opportunities that she would never have if it was not for this program. They've also help myself her mother in situations that I was unable to understand or able to work through without their help. I am truly blessed and so is my daughter to have them apart of our life. We are able to help a little to give back and could be happier to do so. Thank you NCCF for all the kindness and hope you have given my Adison & I.

I have had the privilege of publicizing activities for NCCF and I can tell you that no other local organization works harder at providing opportunities for locals to get involved and to contribute to NCCF activities. NCCF is a first class organization and we will continue to support them. Las Vegas Net Daily.com

I was diagosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 1997 at the age of 14. High School years are extremely formative, as we all know, and an extremely vulnerable time as well. NCCF introduced me to Camp Cartwheel in its second year of operation and invited me to be a Counselor-In-Training which was an opportunity I leapt at. I was hooked instantly! I graduated to Counselor, Cabin Director, and am now the Assistant Director in my 12th year of volunteering at NCCF. I cannot tell you how much Camp Cartwheel does for its campers; children with various catastrophic illnesses including cancer, HIV/AIDs, various hematological and immunological diseases, and various renal problems. Camp offers many of these children, and their siblings who also attend camp, the opportunities to feel normal in a society that values "homogenous" appearances. For many of these campers, its the only opportunity they'll receive to feel normal and to leave their disease or disability at home. Kudos to NCCF, its Staff, Volunteers and Board of Directors. From a Survivor's perspective, you are amazing.

The Great!

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

every aspect of the lives of those that this organization serves as well as the people that volunteer to make this great organization possible.

Ways to make it better...

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

do everything I could to expand and improve the Camp Program which is already life-changing for campers and volunteers alike.

More feedback...

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

its ability to cater directly and specifically to each and every individual patient, sibling/family need.

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

indescribeable. They are truly some of them most wonderful people I've ever associated with in my life.

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

Forever change the lives of those living with catastrophic illnesses, but more specifically, those living with cancer. NCCF has had the desire to expand and improve their already stellar Camp Cartwheel.

Ways to make it better...

we could have saved all those beautiful children who lost their couragous battles with their disease.

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

the current drop in donations has effected the budget of NCCF and the incredible programs it offers, however, NCCF has not lessened the services they offer to the Childhood Cancer Community.

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

I will be involved with the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation and Camp Cartwheel until I'm no longer physically able to function. They own my heart.

Stephane Parker Dir.of Dev. encouraged me to donate to this wonderful Foundation, and I am so thrilled that I did, and continue to contribute to this incredible program. A word about CEO Jeff Gordon, the most sincere, warm and kindhearted man, who is a perfect fit for this foundation and its growth. Stephanie, Jeff and staff provide incredible support for ill children in our community. God Bless them and all the children they provide for.

I have benefited from many different aspects of the NCCF, both being served as a sibling first and then a patient. I have seen the many wonderful things the NCCF has done for families battling life threatening medical conditions. The wonderful staff that they have and the many services they provide definitely ease the process of the battle and help to comfort everyone in the family, including siblings which is an important often forgotten aspect.

The Great!

they way they serve patients and siblings at Camp Cartwheel and in the hospital helping to give them back their childhood.

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

I love seeing the reactions of the families, including my own, realizing that we're not alone and that everything will be okay.

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

very kind and loving. All of the staff is very professional and understanding of the situations of their clients.

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

expand even more upon the many services that they already offer. They could improve the camp experience and offer more services year round to help the families cope.

I worked alongside NCCF as a Child Life Specialist at a local hospital for several years. I was instantly impressed with NCCF because they focus not only on patients with cancer, but other patients with chronic diseases such as blood disorders. They also help the siblings and family of patients, not just the patient! They've worked hard to meet the needs of the chronically ill children in Las Vegas and the surrounding area. They also took initiative to meet the educational needs of hospitalized and chronically ill children who could not attend school by creating a school program in the local children's hospital. This was a growing need that I saw every day as I worked with the chronically ill population. Now that I no longer work for the hospital, I volunteer time with NCCF and am in fact volunteering for their camp this summer.

Ways to make it better...

More feedback...

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

that it does not focus solely on children with cancer.

very open to other peoples opinions and willing to work as a team.

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

expand its programs and provide even more services that it already does!

they had even more money and time to devote one-one with the children.

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

possible overlapping of programs with other local agencies.

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

all the patients and families I worked with that had contact with the staff of NCCF has been very grateful and relieved by their support!

seeing first hand the smiles on the kids faces at Camp Cartwheel, the friendships I've developed with the staff and the satisfaction of knowing our company raises more money each year for this organization. Our community is blessed to have NVCCF.
