KIDS WITHOUT CANCER (formerly Leukemia, Research, Life, Inc.)
June 29, 2010
Leukemia Research Life is an exceptional organization which raises money for cancer research at Children's Hospital of Michigan. The organization gives back a very large percentage of their donations to cancer research, and over the years they have done a lot to fund specific cancer research projects that have undoubtedly saved many lives. I volunteer because my wife is involved in the organization, but also because I have come to appreciate the mission of the organization and have seen first-hand the dedication of the volunteers. When they show the slide show presentation at the Evening of Hope, I get tears in my eyes every time. No, it's not the largest charity that helps raise money for pediatric cancer research, but the people who volunteer for LRL do it because they want to see an end to childhood cancer. They also sponsor several other events besides the Evening of Hope, and the events are always worthwhile and fun to be involved in. If you're thinking of volunteering with LRL, you don't have to invest a lot of time... they could use the support, as much or as little as you're willing to give.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I actually don't have a child with cancer, so haven't experienced the results of the organization first-hand.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
friendly, helpful, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure that each event was successful and fun. The people involved with LRL are all terrific.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
fund a lot of cancer research!
