Please disregard Rudi Tewsbai. This person doesn't even know what state this charity is headquartered in.
Children's Cancer Research Fund CCRF is a leading charity in the Twin Cities and is not associated with anything in Arizona.
Its too bad that one misdirected person can pull down the 5 star rating that CCRF deserves.

I am wondering if someone with Charity Navigator can contact Rudi and ask him to consider withdrawing his post because his negative reference was to a different organization. Hopefully, a corrective action plan is in place to make this right. This organization does so much good it would not be right to wrongfully sully its reputation.
