My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Melanoma International Foundation, Glenmoore, PA, USA
As a person diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma in 2009, I found your online forums with research professionals informative and hope inspiring. My radiation oncologist even consulted one of those professionals when designing my treatment.
Since MIF makes it a priority to investigate the latest treatments and their results, it makes me feel as though I have an advocate. The knowledge I have gained from reading forums and watching reports by doctors who respectfully treat their audience as an intelligent resource has given me a very positive outlook.
The site really makes me feel like a part of a community of medical discovery, very important for a person going through a disease with so few viable treatment options. When I was first diagnosed I was told that I had about a 13% chance that a treatment would work! Pretty scary stuff.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
maybe have a section where people can write their treatment/survivor stories. This might be inspirational to others. This could be accomplished on another website I suppose.
