Review for TurningPoint Breast Cancer Rehabilitation , Roswell, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

TurningPoint Breast Cancer Rehabilitation (www.myturningpoint.org) supports women with breast cancer by offering services such as physical therapy, massage therapy, counseling, nutritional counseling, and education programs. TurningPoint is a game changer for those women during their journey towards a return to normal routines and a full recovery. There are patients from all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds who visit TurningPoint's facility, and over the past 12 years, nearly 3,000 women have been served. Forty percent of all patients receive some kind of financial assistance and no woman is ever turned away to a lack of insurance or inability to pay. TurningPoint founder and executive director Jill Binkley is also a practicing physical therapist and a two-time breast cancer survivor. Jill is a rock star as is everyone who works on the TurningPoint staff. Less than 10 percent of all women are recommended to incorporate exercise and rehabilitation into their treatment plans. This is a number that needs to increase, and part of the mission of TurningPoint is to raise awareness regarding the importance of engaging in activities pertaining to exercise and rehabilitation.

Review for Project Grad-Atlanta Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've gotten to know the work of Project GRAD Atlanta very well the last couple of years as a volunteer and Board member and could not be more impressed with this organization and all it is doing to move the needle when it comes to impacting the lives of young people and the work they are doing in the classroom on the path to high school and college graduation. This is an organization that doesn't just talk the talk, they act every single day while working with a broad range of aspiring students and show the fruits of their labor with exceptional metrics. The bottom line is Project GRAD is having an enormous effect on the lives of hundreds of young people in Atanta every year. The staff is topnotch, led by executive director Dr. Yolanda Watson Spiva, one of the most accomplished educators in Atlanta.
