Review for Cancer Schmancer Foundation, Reston, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Everybody knows what cancer is. Everybody goes all goose-pimply if he/she hears the word "cancer" in connection with himself/ herself or a deer person that he/ she loves.... step by step we can make a big difference & fight the enemy that cancer is .... and so does Fran make a great difference & progress step by step , spreading her experiences, promoting it online every day & drawing the public's attention to it (e.g by being supported by big names... & we all know this is the way to get our society to pay attention & get interested into things).... anybody could be next, YOU, your mother, grandma, sister, cousin, best friend or even daughter.... so get ACTIVE !!..like Fran does... I myself "only" know one woman who had cancer (& fought it like Fran)...it is not a close friend of mine though.. But I DID lose a VERY CLOSE person of mine to CANCER IN GENERAL...my father! He died of lunge cancer.... he was so sick during the last year of his life, was coughing TERRIBLY.. but the doctors didn't investigate his health issues properly & just 2 months before passed away he was diagnosed with cancer (at the age of 58). the tumor was to big , to close to the heart so a surgery was not an option.. I admit .. the reason why I got interested in this nonprofit foundation was because I've been a fan of Fran Drescher...The first Time I heard about Cancer Schmancer was on the Chelsea Lately Show. I even did not know that Fran had had cancer before (because I just moved to the States and though we all love her in Germany she respectively her cancer battle was not over our tabloids) . However that was how I an average person of the society who is influenced by the media got interested and now more involved in this organization. It is great to be updated every day on Facebook by Fran I really want to volunteer soon and spread the word! btw... Fran Drescher has such an impact on the general "cancer battle" now, that when you google her name the word cancer respectively Cancer Schmancer appears in your results and even already in the search bar!..that is how big the organization extent is.... We ♡ Fran even more now ..for being such an influential, sensible, responsible & warm-hearted person.

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

how communicative its members & supporters are.

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

very enthusiastic

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

make greate change & saves many lives .

Ways to make it better...

there was an Representative Office of the organization in my neighborhood.

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

the general lack of interest among the society

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

its founder could not be more communincative. She is doing a great job spreading the word

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  General Member of the Public & I received counseling services.
