Rating: 5 stars  

I can't say enough about this extraordinary couple Maya & Edward who started Making Headway Foundation through there own person issues with there daughter who had a Brain Tumor was inspired to help others with the same illness .They have been a great source of Inspiration and strength to my Family. In 2004 when my son was diagnosed with a Cancer Brain Tumor it changed my life forever. What also changed my life was when Dr Allen walked into the Hospital room and said I want you to meet someone .10 years later Making Headway is in my Heart & an Inspiration my Friend a shoulder to lean on Therapeutic for you and your child .The resources they offer are wonderful when you have trouble elsewhere. As they try to strive to eliminate this terrible decease I Thank God for them and support Them.

Review for Songs Of Love Foundation, Forest Hills, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Trudy Perkins My son James DelRossi was Diagnosed at 14 with a Non-Germonomous Germ Cell Tumor We were sent to Nyu Medical Center and we also stayed at Ronald McDonald House for a 1 1/2 yrs for Treatment We were in the Kitchen Dinning area at Ronald McDonald House and these people walked in with these applications to fill out for Songs-of-love With everything going on the treatment making him either tired or Ill to weak to eat . This was a wonderful day his eyes lit up made him smile and when your going through this ordeal all you want to do is see your child have some joy . He filled out his profile and waited for the Cd they even personalize it with your picture and when he listened to it he started dancing and made him feel important My son is now 20 and in remmision and he still brings his Songs-of-Love Cd's for people to listen to Music is Healing just like laughter is for your soul you need it to Survive Thank You Trudy Perkins

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

You get to see the joy

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

devoted caring and dedicated to there work you can see they love what they do

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

put on a giant concert and raise money for awareness throughout the country like they do with other causes . I tried to do a Fund Raiser with Hard rock I'm not sure what happenned there But Maybe make Tee-shirts crafts article to sell
