My wife and I live in Port St. Lucie. A lady she knows has her granddaughter living with her. Her granddaughter is only 16. The girl had a problem they thought might be breast cancer. The grandmother called everywhere and finally reached the South Florida Cancer Association in Miami. The director of the organization himself drove north from Miami to Port St. Lucie, over two hours and picked up my wife's friend and her granddaughter and took them back south to Ft. Lauderdale, another hour or so, for a mammogram. Something happened and they didn't get it. My wife said the girl was devastated but her friend told her the man took them to dinner at a nice restaurant and actually had the girl laughing and smiling. He then drove them back to Port St. Lucie. She said he was absolutely the greatest. They did get the girl checked out and it turned out to be nothing to be worried about but she told my wife that if either of us ever needed help to call these people and whatever we needed, they would see we got it. She said for the girl that was what made her feel better, knowing that she had someone she could call on for help who would be there for her. She said it meant a lot to both of them. I haven't called this organization or met their director but from the story she told my wife I know that if either of us ever do need them they can be counted on to help. You hear a lot about what this or that organization will do for you but these people don't just talk the talk, they walk the walk and it's why I'm writing this review. These are good people and they deserve recognition. God Bless Them!
