I work in biological research and have always viewed cancer or any other disease a problem to be solved objectively. Frankly, for that very reason I have never really cared for the toll it takes on people affected or their friends and families. I believed that there was not much I could contribute unless I was part of the solution. Until of course one of your own falls prey. My friend had oral cancer 2 years ago. He has done well since then. But I was privy to empathy that I wasn't sure I had before. The OCF was a huge factor in his successful fight. I am grateful and would like to contribute in other ways than I previously thought possible. Thank you.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
it has and will provide valuable support to my friend and others.
