American Cancer Society, Inc.
February 2, 2012

When our son developed cancer at age five we had already been yearly supporters of the ACS thru the Relay for Life. They provided no assistance to us as a family and instead gave us a list of phone numbers of Govt. programs where we might get assistance, We were in need of help to get a medication for our son that was his last chance at survival and The ACS provided no assistant whatsoever. They give only .005 for every dollar donated towards childhood cancer yet they utilize pictures of children consistantly to gain the majority of their donations. They follow suit of the drug manufactures and put their efforts towards more profitable cancers that occur in adults and ignore the great number of children dying from this terrible disease. Donate to www.curesearch.org or www.stbaldricks.org if your intentions are to help save the life of a child from cancer. Donate to the ACS if you like to see people buy expensive cars and take lavish vacations with your hard earned donations.

Ways to make it better...

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

Dismantle the Corporation from the ground up and cut out all waste as well as cut off all inappropriate dealings with drug makers. Slash the outrageous six figure incomes of all of the employees and CEO that are living lavishly both at home and at work with donations that were intended to help find a cure for cancer or help those with the disease.
