AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY FOUNDATION
July 30, 2009

I WAS FIRST TOUCHED BY THE DEATH OF A LOVED ONE IN 1978 FROM CANCER . I RECENTLY LOST MY BROTHER-LAW TO A FIFHT WITH CANCER . IN 2007 MY GRADSON AT THE AGE OF TWELVE WAS TOLD HE HAD BRAIN CANCER, AND THAT IS WHEN I DECIDED TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER FOR RELAY FOR LIFE IN LAGRANGE COUNTY , IN. IT HAS BEEN ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS I HAVE MADE AS A VOLUNTEER IN MY LIFE TIME .IT IS NOT JUST WHAT WE DO BUT HOW WE APPLY OUR SELVES TO HELP AND TO SEE THE OUT COME OF IT ALL . TO WATCH THE SURVIVORS AT WORK WITH YOU AND THOSE THAT YOU HELP IS OVERWHELMING AND TO WORK SIDE BY SIDE WITH OTHERS THAT HAVE SUCH A PASSION TO FIGHT THIS BATTLE FOR A CURE . TO SEE A SMILING FACE OF A SURVIVOR AT A SPECIAL OCCASSION SUCH AS A DINNER OR BREAKFAST THAT IS GIVEN IN THEIR HONOR . THESE ARE THE SILENT HEART WARMER REWARDS TO ME . TO GIVE OF MYSELF AS MUCH AS I CAN TO HELP THIS CAUSE AND KNOWING THAT SOMEONE ELSE IS DOING THE SAME FOR MY GRANDSON AND MANY OTHER PEOPLE THAT SUFFER FROM CANCER .

The Great!

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

OUR COMMUNITY REP. MARTY HAYWARD PUTS HER WHOLE SELF INTO A.C.S. AND IS A GREAT LEADER FOR OUR RELAY TO FOLLOW . I THINK WE HAVE MADE SEEN SOME GOOD RESULTS WITH WHAT WE OCCOMPLISHED THIS YEAR AND HOPE TO DO EVEN BETTER NEXT YEAR .

Ways to make it better...

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

IF I RAN THIS ORGANIZTION ,WELL THAT'S EASY TO SAY UNTIL YOU WALK IN THOSE SHOES ,THEN IT CHANGES A LOT . I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A WAY TO HAVE MORE CARING VOLUNTEERS AND BEABLE TO DO MORE SPECIAL EVENTS FOR THE SURVIVORS .

More feedback

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

THE REWARDS ARE GREAT WITH RELAY AND WORKING WITH HARD WORKING CARING PEOPLE IS A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND SEEING A SMILING FACE OF A CANCER SURVIVOR . THERE IS NOTHING BETTER TO SEE THAT AND TO FEEL THE TOGETHERNESS IN SPIRIT !

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

THE STAFF THAT I MET WERE WARM CARING PEOPLE WITH A PASSION FOR WHAT THEY DO . THE VOLUNTEERS BECAME FRIENDS AND ALSO CARE ABOUT MAKING LIFE BETTER FOR SO MANY PEOPLE .SOME ALSO HAVE LOVE ONES WITH CANCER , BUT WE ALL WORKED TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD OF ALL

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

IF WE HAD THAT MUCH MONEY ,WELL WHOSE TO SAY WHERE IT COULD LEAD US . RESEACH WOULD BEABLE TO HOPEFULLY FIND A CURE FOR CANCER . JUST THINK OF THE HELP WE COULD GIVE TO ALL WHO HAD CANCER , WITH MEDICAL EXPENCES AND HELPING TO MAKE THEIR LIFE MORE JOYFUL

Ways to make it better...

I HOPE TO SEE MORE VOLUNTEERS IN THE COMING YEAR AND WITH THIS I THINK WE CAN OCCOMPLISH MORE OF OUR SET GOALS .

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

TO RAISE MORE MONEY FOR CANCER RESEACH AND TO GET MORE PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH THIS BATTLE . TO UNDERSTAND THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER HAS NOT GONE AWAY AND WE NEED TO STOP IT NOW !TO MANY YOUNG CHILDREN AND ADULTS EVERYDAY ARE TOLD THEY HAVE CANCER , WHY ?

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

MY LIFE HAS CHANGED SINCE CANCER HAS EFFECTED OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS . YOUNG PEOPLE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO SUFFER FROM CANCER NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE TREATMENT , SADNESS AND PAIN IT BRINGS INTO THEIR LIFES . A CURE NEEDS TO FOUND AND NOW !

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
