Cancer Schmancer Foundation
February 1, 2011

My mother is a Breast Cancer survivor. At the time of her diagnosis, I was 16 years old. I didn't know what to do, or what to think. And to be quite honest, neither did she. We had heard briefly of Fran's struggle, but after cancer hit so close to home, we both started doing our research. Cancer Schmancer helped us both. My mother learned not to take this lying down, and just act like her doctors had the final say. She asked questions, got second opinions, worked fast, and became a medical consumer. We were both fans of Fran, and seeing her strength and courage, and her willingness as a celebrity to reach out to the public and start something that would save lives gave us hope, and we knew that everything was going to work out. I am 21 years old now, and I see my mother as my biggest inspiration, but Fran Drescher is right alongside her, because she helped me keep my head up, and not feel sorry for myself, or my mother, because we didn't act like victims. Cancer? "Cancer Schmancer!" "If you catch it on arrival, 95% survival!"

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My mother's survival, and the survival of people everywhere is a direct result of the ideas and practices of this organization. Being a medical consumer, and learning that early detection is key in beating cancer is something every single person on this planet should know about, and that is what Cancer Schmancer is doing. Informing people, and leading them on the right track.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not change a thing about Cancer Schmancer. I feel that it is 100% effective in teaching the public the ins and outs of cancer survival.
