Review for Melanoma International Foundation, Glenmoore, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Nothing but praise for this organization. As a stage IIIC survivor for 8 yrs. My husband called Catherine in the middle of the night looking for answers and was treated with kindness and respect.
When I recurred at my 3 yr mark she was one of the first people I called. She was more knowledgeable about some of the trials than my own doctors. She was always willing to search for answers from one of the advisory board drs if she was unable to answer a question herself.
We really feel she was our guardian angel.

Review for Melanoma International Foundation, Glenmoore, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started out as a client served. My husband found this great organization almost 4yrs ago while desperately searching for answers after receiving my stage IIIC diagnosis. Catherine spent many hours on the phone with us during our most difficult times and offered us accurate information and much needed support. I became involved in the forums when she started them, and have watched them grow into a place where people come from all over the world for support and accurate information. Although I'm currently doing well, she was the first person I turned to when I had my recur last summer. I know she works hard to keep informed of the latest developments. Great Job MIF! Shirley Z

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed in 2006 with stage IIIC melanoma. My husband found this site and we were so impressed by the immediate outpouring of information and compassion by Catherine Poole. She answered her own hotline and stuck by us during every step of our battle. We know that we can receive accurate and reliable information because the cite is hon code approved. This means alot.

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

The genuine caring . The accuracy of the information.

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

Wonderful!

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

Continue with the mission that they do so well. Perhaps be able to raise even more awareness.
