My mom has stage 4 lung cancer and is undergoing chemo. We have filled out all the forms they asked for and sent them in, i have sent emails and left messages but none has been returned. I understand if they can not help but we have heard nothing and sent a lot of personal information to them. At this point i do not know what to think.
Review from Guidestar
COC is an organization that is extremely underrated when it comes to the world of Cancer. They are unique from other cancer organizations in the fact that they actually help THE PATIENTS and their directly affected families through support, education, advocacy, and financial assistance to help ease the financial burden of those battling for their lives. The funds they raise are NOT raised for research and do not join in on further enabling this debilitating disease to remain lucrative for pharmaceutical companies and the administrators' pockets.
The CEO and face of Christians Overcoming Cancer Miss Mary Jenkins is a 2x breast cancer survivor and has used her experiences to passionately help others going through what she herself has went through and endured.
I will continue to support the mission of this organization 100% and I would highly recommend for others to do the same!!
Thanking God for the commitment of service, love and loyalty to assist as many people as possible during their need. They operate in the spirit of excellence restoring dignity, extending hope and a listening ear.
I do have cancer, a rare form of lymphoma. I've had it now for 4 years, started in my lungs and had to have back to back black to back lung surgeries. My cure, as my first oncologist told me, I was good to go for 20 years, lasted 6 months!!!! I met Mary at one of our group fundraiser, for her foundation. It was not until later, that I learned the truth about these big foundations, livestrong who sent out 2 nice binders filled with information And in the back how to get financial help. Not one word about Christians Overcoming Cancer!!! Same with lymphoma society, and the others, but I have seen the forwarded envelopes to COC
Where to begin on describing this organization. First and foremost it is lead from the heart. With most "cancer fundraisers" it's important to know how the money you give is being used. Christians Overcoming Cancer without a doubt helps those in immediate need of personal essentials and just plain ole day to day living--NOT RESEARCH! I give to DOC as much as I can--it makes the heart feel good :)
This organization is amazing!! The work that is being done to help others is such a gift and a blessing to so many!!
As the Founder of Christians Overcoming Cancer it is my pleasure to provide an informational review of who we are.
I founded the organization in 2006 after the Susan G Komen Foundation told me they didn't use the money raised to help people actually battling cancer, the American Cancer Society said they didn't offer financial assistance for gave possible places that could help and LIVESTRONG although saying they offered financial assistance didn't offer the help I needed.
We just celebrated our 11th Year Anniversary!
Over the past 11 Years we have successfully brought awareness to where money goes and DOES NOT go in the world of cancer; emotionally supported men, women and parents of children battling cancer and raised money to help people ACTUALLY battling cancer pay bills...
Over the past 11 yrs COC has helped people across the country when in their most desperate of times.
Over the past 11 yrs COC has become the #1 go to for people battling cancer in need of help.
Over the past 11 yrs COC has received referrals from the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen Foundation, Cancer Centers of America, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Prostate Cancer Foundation, The Wellness Center, the Columbus Cancer Clinic, St. Jude's, The Patient Advocate Foundation LIVESTRONG, and MANY MORE hospitals, insurance companies and other organizations.
Over the past qq yrs we have helped people actually battling cancer who live across the country and partnered with organizations and people in other countries
Over the past 11 yrs we could not have helped anyone without the generous donations from people across the country.
We have done all this with a volunteer staff who are passionate about helping cancer patients succeed on their road to recovery.
While I was fighting prostate cancer Christians Overcoming Cancer came to my family's aid and helped us by paying our rent. I didn't think anyone could help us with the $600 we needed. God bless this organization. They really do help!
A great group of people. Mary Jenkins is so inspiring and makes an impact with everyone she encounters! I Love Christians Overcoming Cancer!
Christians Overcoming Cancer has been our primary beneficiary for eight years. Their mission is to help people going through treatment, pay their bills. Mary Jenkins, the Founder, has demonstrated leadership with her high energy of consistent and persistent direction.
This is the rare charity that does not have an expensive leadership team and expensive marketing. They actually care about the people they are working to help.
I love the way this organization uses money to help PEOPLE in treatment!!! My regular donations come out of my paychecks and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Please join me in making sure PEOPLE aren't forgotten while society searches for a cure.
