Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
July 30, 2009

I love the phrase from Board member, John Vallely, who says, "When we cure cancer, we'll find something else to do with our time. . . .," until then, we give our time, thoughts and energy to this cause. John and Karen lost their daughter to cancer. More than a third (probably more) of our Board members have a child who has been lost to or is a survivor of cancer, still, all of us try to do whatever we can to find the finds to defeat this disease.

The Great!

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

so many ways from survivors, to those who we need to keep fighting for.

Ways to make it better...

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

More feedback

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

the attitude; it is truly without ego--do whatever we can.

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

fantastic; makes it the special organization that it is.

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

take on so many more cancer types to fund more research in so many places to impact children in the U.S. and all over the world.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time.

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

financial hurdles in tough economy; uniquely this organization funds research in a whole host of pediatric cancer segments.

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

I want this organization to win the fight against cancer.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
