American Cancer Society, Inc.

Tell your story here and help others understand this charity
I have a family member who is in charge of our Cancer office and she is constantly either driving (80 miles to the closest facility) or flying to the MANY different affairs, meetings, training sessions etc. This is not only the cost of the trip but the hotels (always expensive ones with supposedly redued rates) but the meals, cost of meeting rooms etc. I have ask her why they don't telephone conference instead and she has agreed it could work and would be so much cheaper and she doesn't know why they don't. Just think. We are a small town with one represenative - - Muptiply that by how many of these events they sponser and how many people across the nation they are sending to these things. Couldn't that money be much better used to research Cancer and help the cancer victoms. Doesn"t someone care?????

The Great!

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

observing my family member who I see constantly leaving for some meeting she has to attend.

Ways to make it better...

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

I'd do what needs to be done with our government. Set up someone who truly cares about the expenses of this organization and can spend time cutting the unnecessary expenses, including the ridiculous slaries, so more of the donated money can go for Cancer. Telephone conferencing would be a great way to start

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & I have participated in the Relay for Life programs.
