Review for The Next Step Fund, Inc., Cambridge, MA, USA
Getting access to quality medical treatment is only part of the problem for young people suffering from AIDS, sickle cell and cancer. They need personal support to cope with these debilitating diseases too, and that is what Next Step does really well. Whether it is the 1-1 tutoring and mentoring that the Strive program provides for teens with sickle cell, Face2Face’s retreats and workshops for young adults with cancer, or the support and education that One Love gives to young people suffering from AIDS, these programs make a difference! The friends and relatives that care for young people struggling to cope with these diseases need help too, and that is where the CARE program fits in. I am very proud to support what Next Step does. I also appreciate the way they use my money – 80% of it goes to the programs.
