Review for THE SAMFund, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a SAMFund recipient, I can attest to the great work they do! I was awarded funding to assist with prescription drug and medical bills, as well as transportation costs. As a student living in NYC, it was HUGE burden lifted off my shoulders to have this help. I am a survivor of Hodgkin's Disease and Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. My youngest sister was the donor for my Bone Marrow Transplant, and there are a lot of long-term side effects that have proven costly and sometimes restricting. I am a doctoral student studying the aftermath of childhood illness. THANK YOU, SAMFund for helping survivors move on!!!!

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

It's intimacy. The founder of the program is a cancer survivor herself, and is close contact with all applicants and recipients.

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

mostly young people whose lives have been affected by cancer (either themselves or someone they know).

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

Fund cancer survivors' education to get out there and cure cancer!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008
