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

Rating: 5 stars  

The OCF is a vital connection for people who find themselves with the numbing news of having oral cancer. It is a lifeline to offer hope, advice, empathy, friends, and to answer the infinite questions, repeatedly, to those diagnosed. There have been invaluable friendships formed among people who have lived through the treatments together and have shared their experience with newcomers. There are truly some "angels" in the forum who have guided the members for years, putting in more time than a full time job, to assist folks through the process of getting to "the new normal". OCF is a Godsend.

Review for SARASOTA LUTHERAN SCHOOL, Sarasota, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When looking for a Christian school, this one would meet all criteria if you are looking for a well-educated and caring staff, a beautiful campus, a Lutheran church on the same premises, teachers who care for each and every student individually, excellence in education with many awards and accolades for everything from science fairs to spelling bees to even stock market "investing". With a weekly chapel offering spiritual growth and daily prayer, all the needs of a growing child are met at Sarasota Lutheran School. Students who were bullied and ignored at other schools have entered ours and stayed until they graduate because of our non-bullying policies and the kind nature of each and every teacher and the principal. Our children are even growing a vegetable garden now - very essential knowledge today. We have pre-school through 8th grade. Our students go on to become effective and positive members of society.

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

Children.

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

Jewels.

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

Build a bigger school with gymnasium.

Ways to make it better...

Could not have been better.

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

Lack of funding!!!!!!!!

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

Jesus teaches here : )

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

Rating: 5 stars  

If you want a forum which offers personal experience, empathy, advice, Care (with a capital C), kindness, and even the BEST recipes for recovering O.C. patients, The Oral Cancer Foundation is the place to be. These folks truly become family (sometimes even MORE understanding than family). We work together to combat this disease. Thank you Brian and Gary!

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

The people.

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

outstanding!

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

make every person on this planet aware of oral cancer and the importance of getting screened.

Ways to make it better...

Survivors should always come back occasionally.

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

Getting the word out.

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

Please be aware of your body and what it is trying to tell you.
