AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY FOUNDATION
July 27, 2009

The American Cancer Society gave me hope when I needed it most. I am a cancer survivor. The programs the ACS offers has helped many of my neighbors. One neighbor is a driver for the road to recovery program, it provides rides to treatments for cancer patients that have no way to get there. The ACS helped my good friend deal with her loss of her mother, she is giving back by leading up her local Look Good Feel Better progrom for breast cancer patients. If you've ever had a mammogram or a PSA test done-you can thank the ACS for funding that research. I have only great things to say about this non profit organization. I'm very proud to be part of such a dyanmic and caring group of staff and volunteers. Keep up the great work...and lets hope one day we put ACS out of business by finding a cure.

The Great!

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

my every day life. I help to register all of our newly diagnosed cancer patients with the ACS, and provide them with the 1-800 #. I have see 1st hand caregivers find comfort at a local relay. I have seen the cancer prevention study in action localy

Ways to make it better...

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

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

How is helps people find comfort & hope in very different ways. It might be sharing their story at a team rally, or getting fit for a prostetic breast or wig. Or listening to other men at Man to Man. I love seeing HOPE in people who have contacted ACS

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

empowered, passionate, educated, dedicated, friendly, caring, outstanding, supportive, hardworking, organized, good listeners, compassionate, and the best there is!

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

fund several more investigators (researchers) you never know which one will be the one that discovers the cure!

Ways to make it better...

I would have know about all of the American Cancer Society's programs and services from the moment I heard the words "you have cancer."

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

lack of funding for research, cut backs.

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

I have volunteered for the ACS for more than 10 years and plan to continue to do all I can for this wonderful company.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
