My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, Irvine, CA, USA
My first experiences with PCRF came in 1986 years ago when I was 13 and diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. At the time, my doctor was considered a national expert on my disease and I was only the 5th patient that he had ever treated with it--the first with the tumor still in place. To this day, I still participate in research studies and long-term follow ups because I believe in their mission and want others to live (as I did) without suffering all the side effects from chemo. Through their research, the same treatment that took me 28 months of chemo can now be accomplished in less than a year and with far fewer complications. Supporting PCRF means saving the lives of children. It doesn't get any better than that!
