It is amazing when you can take pain and create beauty. To lose a child is something no-one should have to endure. Stefan has created CRT in honor of his daughter Ashley. He has vowed to help other families with children diagnosed with cancer seeking alternative treatments. I hope to help him on this mission. Every child and their family deserve the best options available. CRT helps educate and provide resources for these families .

Understanding what this non profit wants to do just warms my heart! They want to educate families on alternative cancer treatments, help them assimilate the information and then help families pay for it! When I was at a fundraiser for Cancer Response Team there was a young lady suffering through the consequences of cancer and its treatment. She, and her family,looked to CRT for assistance. I saw hope and joy that day! Heart warming!

To have personally watched this organization grow from its inception has been truly amazing. The founder and President is a wonderful father that has successfully channeled a great deal of his grief after personally losing his daughter to cancer into an amazing organization focused on helping families in situations similar to his. The organization has made significant strides and it is wonderful to see them making a direct impact on families battling cancer by financially supporting their pursuit of alternative treatment options. All families deserve the right to varied options and opinions on how to battle this terrible disease and for CRT to be financially making that possible for people that wouldn't otherwise have that opportunity is just awesome and humbling. We all get asked to contribute to various charities and CRT is one that I personally financially support as I believe wholeheartedly in the mission and purpose of the organization. Congratulations to Stefan and the CRT board members for continuing to make something WONDERFUL happen for other families.

This organization was started by an incredible man who lost his beautiful daughter to cancer.
His goal is to inform the public that there are effective, alternative treatment options available and to financially assist the families who chose to purse these alternative options, that are not covered by regular insurance.
The passion behind this organization is beautiful, and it is an honor and a privilege to see how CRT is helping families and changing lives every day.
This is only the beginning for CRT, and I can't wait to see what the future holds, and how many people's lives will be positively impacted because of it!

I have the absolute honor and privilege of being a volunteer with the incredible organization, Cancer Response Team. The heart of every single member of the board, and every volunteer, is to help children and families affected by cancer. Everyone has a right and a need to know what all of the options are in regards to their children's health. CRT is helping to meet that need, by providing information and giving financial support.

Why we started Cancer Response Team.

As a father, I have experienced the heartbreaking agony of losing my precious 13 year old daughter from brain cancer. When my daughter, Ashley, was first diagnosed with cancer, we were shocked, felt helpless and like most parents we trusted her doctors to cure her disease. My daughter went through the traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments that were recommended by medical doctors and we followed the standard protocol that cancer patients are given. Naturally we were new to this and knew nothing about cancer cures and simply trusted a “one sided” opinion about a cure. While our daughter went through countless treatments, we found out that so many other successful alternative treatments are available. By the time we were made aware of other alternatives, it was too late for our daughter to pursue these treatments since chemotherapy and radiation had already done much harm to her body and the cancer had spread. This meant that for us, successful alternative treatment were not an option anymore. As a father, I was upset, for not being made aware of other options we could have chosen for our daughter. I want to keep the promise that I made to Ashley that I would start a nonprofit organization to help children that have been diagnosed with cancer and to inform the public on proven successful alternative treatments. I do not want any parent to see and experience the struggle and pain my daughter had to endure. This is why we have dedicated ourselves to start this great nonprofit organization “Cancer Response Team”.

We firmly believe that every individual should have choices and options when forced to face the crisis of a cancer diagnosis of a loved one. Families finding themselves in this heartbreaking situation should have the opportunity to carefully consider a variety of different alternative treatments. They should be allowed and encouraged to choose the treatment plan that best fits the family.

It’s our greatest desire to inform and update the public on many effective alternative cancer treatment options by providing resources that are available outside of the conventional treatments. Chemotherapy and radiation are not your only options! It is not at all our intent to discriminate against someone who chooses chemotherapy or radiation, however CRT pledges to provide needed financial assistance to support families when alternative therapy is chosen. It's disturbing that alternative treatment options are most often declined or not even recognized by traditional insurance policies, especially since the success rate on many alternative treatments are overwhelmingly positive.

In a nutshell, CRT is all about providing hope for families while focusing on the child’s remission. We are 100% committed to assist financially with the alternative treatment costs until we can one day celebrate the child’s remission and a new chance at a healthy and fulfilling life.

Stefan Moore, CRT Founder
