Review for The Samfund, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The SAMFund is the only organization that provides support to young adult cancer survivors. They make a huge difference in our lives by serving as an informational resource, providing financial support, and by raising awareness.

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

the enthusiasm of the staff and their commitment to improving the quality of life of young cancer survivors everywhere

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

visionaries; passionate; committed; engaging; intelligent; fun; empathetic

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

make a huge impact in meeting the needs of young people living with and surviving cancer; expand their network; provide more comprehensive "care" to more people;

Ways to make it better...

NOTHING

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

the economic climate. people are less willing and able to give. the needs of young cancer survivors doesn't change. in fact, many survivors are probably facing additional challenges themselves which makes the sam fund even more relevant!

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

i'm inspired by how sam transformed her personal cancer experience into something so big!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009
