Review for APFED, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been the a volunteer with APFED since 2003, when my youngest child was first diagnosed with an Eosinophilic Disorder. My son suffered daily in horrible pain for 21 months, seeing 18 different doctors...all who were unable to diagnose what was wrong. Thanks to the wonderful staff at APFED I was able to locate a doctor who was verse in Eosinophilic Disorders, who was able to finally provide us with an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. I volunteer for APFED because I truly believe in their mission to expand education, create awareness and fund research. No one, child or adult, should suffer like my son did. APFED is run by all volunteers, who either live with or have a loved one living with these disorders. Everyone involved is dedicated to making a difference for others living the same life. Thank you APFED!!!

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

The dedication of all the volunteers who run this organization!

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

dedicated, caring people, who were either living with, or have a loved one, living with an Eosinophilic Disorders, giving them the ability to tell others "We get it!"

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

Further education of physicians and the general public about Eosinophilic Disorders, as well as support major research programs to find better means of diagnosis, treatment and hopefully a cure!
