The SAMFund is an amazing organization because it fills a void in the world of cancer needs. There are many organizations that cater to the emotional and physical issues that surround cancer, and many that fund research to find new cures, but the SAMFund is the only one that I know of that provides financial support for young adult cancer survivors, a population that experiences the effects of cancer in a different way than other age groups. It's hard enough to find one's place in the world but when cancer is added to the mix that task becomes even harder. I have seen a couple close friends and relatives fall behind in their careers and graduate schooling which were only just starting when they became ill. Though they were fortunate to survive their cancer experience, the debt they incurred because of it was a burden. The SAMFund helped them pay off loans and debts which would otherwise have continued to mount. It is an incredibly important organization that more people need to know about.

The SamFund is an amazing organization that provides much needed help to young cancer survivors. The SamFund is an invaluable resource for people like me who are trying to get back on their feet after a costly and traumatizing cancer experience. I can't say enough about the SamFund, they are absolutely wonderful!

This organization is so incredibly dedicated to the growing population of young adult cancer survivors. A grant in 2008 relieved a great deal of financial pressure for my boyfriend, who is putting himself through school while attempting to pay off numerous medical bills from his cancer treatment. The SAMFund is superbly run and does not stop at financial support. Events that bring together survivors celebrate life, create an open forum for discussion of issues and experiences, and, perhaps most importantly, create a powerful community to promote their motto: surviving and moving forward.

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

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

only hope to do as well as Sam and Michelle do.

More feedback...

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

the absolute passion and sincerity of those involved.

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

extraordinarily kind.

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

give so many more people a fair start at an adult life.

Ways to make it better...

we lived in a dream world in which endless funds are available to relieve all debt for all cancer survivors...

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

meeting the growing needs of a population that, unfortunately, will not diminish.

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

the SAMFund takes measures to improve quality of life in a way that has renewed in me the belief that we can go beyond enduring life and its challenges to truly thrive.
