Review for Cancer Schmancer Foundation, Reston, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My grandma passed away in 2007 from uterine cancer, which was the same kind of cancer that Fran Drescher had. When I read Fran's book, I felt like it answered a lot of the questions I never got to ask my grandma. I really appreciated that. Then Fran started up the foundation to help other women get better treatment than even she got. I love the foundation's mission for empowerment. They promote the voice of women, and of young people, too. I personally fit into both of those categories, as I am a 17 year old girl. For my senior graduation project, I organized a large fundraising concert to benefit Cancer Schmancer. The event actually going to take place this Saturday at my high school. Throughout the whole process of planning this event, a Cancer Schmancer representative has been there to answer all of my questions. I am truly inspired by Fran Drescher's spirit. Instead of letting cancer bring her down, she turned the situation into something wonderful that is helping countless people. I believe in this organization whole-heartedly.
