Conejo Valley Senior Concerns
August 9, 2011

I've always wanted to volunteer for a Meals of Wheels program. I am so happy that Senior Concerns is the organization that coordinates this very important program. Scott Porter is my direct contact and I find him to be very organized and easy to work with. First hand I know that my group of Seniors depend on this vital resource. It is also a good way to check in on them on a daily basis.

The Great!

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

the care of and guarantee that these wonderful Senior citizens get a good and healthy meal.

Ways to make it better...

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

make this a "free" service to all Seniors in need.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Delivery.

LAM Foundation
June 14, 2011

As a LAM patient, The LAM Foundation has provided me with a well balanced and well researched forum to get the answers I need about this very mysterious disease.

It is run by compassionate and hard working people who understand the seriousness of LAM and have dedicated themselves to finding the cure, if not theraputics, to prolong lives and imrove quality of life for us small group of women .

The team of Doctors and Scientists associated the TLF have delivered 3 major discoveries in a short period of time:

1) The genetic mutation responsible for LAM - which in turn opened the door to theraputics such as:
2) Sirolimus - The first approved drug that seems to stall progression
3) A non-evasive blood test to confirm LAM called VEGF-D

I will forever be grateful to all the love and commitment that comes from the Foundation. They are the best resource for LAM info.

The Great!

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

Finding support and current, accurate information about LAM.

Ways to make it better...

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

Look for a celebrity spokesperson.

MY ROLE:
