I am unemployed, no health insurance, and with no transportation. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer but saw no way I could get treatment without having the money to pay for it. My doctor had a list of organizations that he thought could help so I began calling them. None returned my calls with the exception of these people. They listened to me, asked questions about my condition and financial situation, and then provided me with names and telephone numbers of local hospitals they thought had a good chance of helping me out. The first one I called, Broward Health, did have a plan for patients in my situation and I was able to set up an appointment to have my case reviewed and I was accepted. I had a great team that worked closely with me all through treatment and while I am still feeling the effects of the therapy, it was successful and I owe it all to that first phone call to these people at the South Florida Cancer Association.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My husband and I are retired and on a fixed income and treatment costs were going to be more than we could handle. I went online and found the South Florida Cancer Association. I called and spoke to Mr. Dutton. We talked about my cancer and he was very kind and reassuring. He told me about his own battle with cancer and it was very inspirational. He has been great in helping us with the medical costs, and for me personally, he made me feel that I can handle what I am going through and if I need someone to talk to, he is there. I can't say enough about how wonderful he and his organization has been for us.

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

providing me with personal support in dealing with my breast cancer and helping us with meeting the costs of treatment.

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

that I was left with the feeling that I could deal with my cancer and if I needed someone to talk to, they were there.

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

absolutely wonderful. Mr. Dutton could not do enough for me and my husband and I found his own story inspirational.

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

certainly help a lot more people.

I found something that I was very worried about but did not have the money to see a doctor or to have a test. I contacted the South Florida Cancer Association. They worked with me to get me into a program that allowed me to see a doctor and to get tested without having to pay a lot of money. It turned out to be nothing for which I am very thankful. They are very nice people. God Bless Them.‎

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

some of the nicest people I have ever talked to.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
