I've been working for JCWO and it has, by far, exceeded my expectations. There is always something to do, is a never-stopping effort with a constant flow of work and new opportunities. I've learned a lot so far and met so many different, awesome and supportive people, not only as part of the JCWO staff, but also as donors, volunteers, advisers, and board members.

Two of the things I love most about JCWO is the closeness to other organizations (and the opportunity to work with people from different parts of the world) and it's promising cancer immunotherapy program. I believe that immunotherapies are the future in cancer treatment and the fact that their immunotherapy uses (since it's inception) principles that this year's Nobel prize winners used in their work, is a good evidence that their work is heading in the right direction.
