Review for The Oral Cancer Foundation, Newport Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I discovered the Oral Cancer Foundation after I had completed treatment for Stage IV Head & Neck cancer. The ability to get answers to my "is this normal" questions, and to subsequently be able to help others through the Patient /Caregiver forums have been invaluable to me in aiding my recovery, both physically and mentally. The information available through the Foundation's website is unparalleled. Brian Hill's dedication to this cause makes him a true hero in my view. His untiring efforts to educate the public and professionals on the important of screening for early detection are most mpressive. I only wish I could contribute more financially to hte foundation.

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

the assistance they have given to thousands of cancer patients and thier caregivers.

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

try to find more people like Brian Hill.

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

the ability to pay it forward through the forums.

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

Dedicated, caring.

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

offer screenings in underserved areas, bring the message to even more of the public, and fund additional research.

Ways to make it better...

I had found this organization sooner.

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

fundraising in a difficult economy.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Client Served & 5 year survivor of Stage IV Throat Cancer, Participated in fundraisers, benefitted from interaction with others in forums.
