Review for THE SAMFund, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The SAMFund holds a unique place amongst not just cancer-related organizations, but non-profits in general. Founder and cancer survivor Sam Eisenstein Watson focuses on a niche — young adult survivors of cancer — and recognizes that the tremendous financial costs of battling the disease can be more difficult to battle than the emotional ones. People are strong, and with love and support can show amazing resilience. But bank accounts are fluid, and can too quickly be drained with hospital bills, coupled with missed work or school. By providing financial assistance to young adult survivors of cancer, and working tirelessly for those it helps, The SAMFund empowers the individuals it helps to regain control of their lives after frightening interruptions from the disease.
