Review for Breast Cancer Options Inc, Kingston, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love Breast Cancer Options! This local, grass roots organization meets the needs of local women in a much more meaningful way than is possible for larger, national groups. BCO shares up to date information on traditional and non-traditional treatment options through its email newsletters and conferences; provides "companion advocates" for medical visits; support groups; supportive summer camp experiences for children who's mothers have breast cancer; community education forums; and an emotional safety net for women and men facing a breast cancer diagnosis. I am forever grateful that BCO walked by my side through my breast cancer journey.

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

their expertise coupled with their compassion.

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

wonderful.

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

ensure that every family facing devastating diseases would have the medical, financial, social and emotional support they need to deal with the experience.

Ways to make it better...

It was great--I can't think of how to improve it.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

sufficient funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

more communities would benefit from grass roots organizations like this one.
