What I want to do

I want to change the face of cancer by giving every 'Survivor' an opportunity to share their 'voice'!

What matters to me

The thing that matters most to me is 'Survivorship' and all that makes up that word!

What inspires me

What inspires me are the 'Survivors' that I talk to and help share their 'voice'. Each and every day I am moved by another.

Stupid Cancer
July 10, 2009

Matthew has done an amazing job of putting together and organization who truly realizes and exemplifies what their mission statement is. When I was initially diagnosed with cancer last year, i[2]y was an amazing resource and I'm so glad that it exists. It is much needed!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

advocacy and education for young adults diagnosed with cancer.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change the age demographic to include the 40-50 year olds but that's because I fall into that category.

More feedback

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

their constant drive and motivation to spread their message.

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

very helpful and giving.

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

expand their outreach and educate more people about young adult cancer.

Ways to make it better...

I was younger? I actually had a great experience with i[2]y even though I am 2 years outside of the demographic that they serve. It honestly was never an issue but I have to answer these questions.

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

limited resources available in the form of donations due to the economic cutback from the recession that we are in.

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

that i[2]y is doing a great job.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

MY ROLE:
Professional with expertise in this field & I am the founder of "Voices of Survivors". Prior to founding this, I was diagnosed with cancer and utilized the resources that i[2]y provides for those diagnosed with cancer.
