Review for AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY FOUNDATION, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The American Cancer Society helps in so many ways. Of course the research end is so important, but ACS goes way beyond that. It provides a 24-hour helpline, where anyone can call with any question or concern. I am involved in the Relay for Life. Our mission is to bring awareness to the community. On a personal note, I believe that the 20 years between my father's lung cancer diagnosis and my mother's lung cancer diagnosis made all the difference. In those 20 years so much progress was made that my mother is a 9-year survivor. In fact, she has survived breast and lung cancer. My review is an attempt to assure that the American Cancer Society gets the recognition it deserves for all that it does.

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

the sense of pride I've gained.

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

very enthusiastic.

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

save more lives, help more people with general needs.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  Volunteer & I work closely with the Relay for Life.
