Review for Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, Irvine, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PCRF is run by a small group of totally dedicated people backed by a large pool of volunteers. Their grants have provided funding for some of the most cutting edge developments in childrens' cancer therapies today & the results of their research are evident in the increased survival rates we now see. Despite PCRF's small size they manage to put on multiple large functions every year by working long hours with great effeciency; the goal is to get the money to where it does the most good! I am a doner, a volunteer & a benefeciary as my son was diagnosed with ALL 23 years ago at age 4 & has been cancer free for 14 years.

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

meeting & interacting with the great peoplewho work there or volunteer their time.

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

Incredibly generous of their time & talents.

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

have an enormous impact on the diversity of grants it could fund; cancer has so many facets & therapies have to be designed specifically for each one

Ways to make it better...

we had more room to handle all the card program requirements.

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

Continuing to expand their outreach & develop different opportunities to involve people who haven't experienced childhood cancer in their own lives.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
