Being a volunteer in The Cancer Education and Research Institute (CERI) is a wonderful opportunity for advancing in knowledge, and an outstanding experience in the field. Educational lectures, researches about cancer studies, and methodologies to promote knowledge about cancer and cancer prevention are crucial and very much needed in a simplified way for communities. With CERI, I have deepened my understanding of the importance of spreading scienfitic data in simplified words as much as possible to reach more and more people who try to find comprehensive information about cancer related studies.

Dr. Sahin's lecture on prostate cancer last week was outstanding. In the span of a couple hours I greatly increased both my awareness and understanding of this disease. She actually went into quite a bit more medical and scientific detail than I'd expected -- symptoms, treatment options, current research, avoidance, etc. -- but always in a manner which all could follow. Dr. Sahin is clearly motivated by the highest ideals, and this is reflected in the important, helpful work her organization provides.

It's plain as day that the lecture about prostat cancer was the best lecture I have ever joined. I've just gotten to know Cancer Research Simplified and I am so glad I did. I do appreciate every moment as a volunteer. I learned many things. After this lecture, I want to join all lectures of Cancer Research Simplified and continue to be a volunteer of this great organization. Thank you so much.

Cancer Research Simplified is a great nonprofit. They make lots of information available about cancer that would be difficult to find otherwise. Most importantly, you can trust the information they give you, which is never a given for things you could find by yourself through the web. And true to their name, their videos and posts always explain things in a way that anyone can understand. I've been following them from the start and I will keep doing so and so should everyone: unfortunately cancer is so diffuse now that it's almost guaranteed that each one of us will experience it up close, either in person or through a loved one. Knowing more can only help deal with it were you have to face it. And knowing more about prevention may save your life or the life of someone you love...

I have had the privilege of working with CRS for the past couple years. They are one of the very best nonprofit organizations out there. Each and every volunteer was working very hard to provide the latest information and guidance to the cancer patients. They helped thousands of cancer patients diagnosed with various types cancer with their online web site and forums, meetings and activities by bringing attention to cancer awareness. I was very lucky to work with Ayguen Sahin, the founder of CRS, and very grateful to all the wonderful volunteers who make this very great organization that it is.

Herkesin bildiği gibi geçmişten günümüze insan hayatını tehdit eden birçok sağlık probleminin başında kanser hastalığı gelmektedir. Ne kadar çok çalışma ve araştırma o kadar çok bilgi demek ve Cancer Research Simplified sadece bunu yapmıyor, insanların anlayacağı şekilde kanser hastalığı hakkında bilgilendiriyor. Aslında sadece bu kadarla da yetinmiyor. Kanserin maddi manevi yönden zor bir hastalık olmasının dışında psikolojik olarak da yıkıcı etkileri olan bir güç olduğunun farkındalar. Mücadele edilmesi gerektiğinin bilincinde ve bu bilinci oluşturmaya çalışıyorlar. Bu doğrultuda da motive edici yazıları ve çalışmaları ile hastaların umudunu ayakta tutmaya gayret eden, pozitif enerji yayan ve bu enerjiyi güçlü bir sinerjiye dönüştürebilen bir kurumdan bahsediyorum. İşin diğer bir noktası hastalıkların ve kanserin dışında, insan sağlığı , doğru beslenme ve dinamik bir yaşam için gıdalar hakkında da güzel, pratik, akılda kalıcı bilgiler ve uygulamalardan bahsetmeleri sağlıklık bir birey olarak dikkatimi çekmiyor değil. Ve bu kadar maddi zorlukların içinde özveri ve sabır ile çalışan insanları görmek gelecek için güzel bir umut ışığı yakıyor. Tüm emekleriniz için asıl bizlerin sizlere teşekkür etmesi gerekiyor, teşekkürler CANSER RESEARCH SİMPLİFİED...

Cancer Research Simplified provides us the information we need and looking for in a way that we can reach easily and understand. Also, I find the symposiums they have been organizing are informative and help to find answers to the questions I have in my mind about cancer types and treatments.
