I had the privilege to get to know Dr. Ayguen Sahin personally and it is remarkable to see her passion and dedication to cancer research and education. Her videos on YouTube are extremely informative and provide a simpler picture of the otherwise intimidating medical language of cancer research. The organization is based in Cambridge, MA, and its accessibility in several languages, makes it outstanding in the field. I highly recommend visiting the website (http://www.canceredinstitute.org) and contacting them with any concerns – you will not be disappointed in the personalized attention you will receive to all your questions.

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 (CRS) website provides simply information to cancer patients and their family in several languages. Thus, general public with a non-scientific background can understand and learn about cancer, helping families devastated by the pain of the possibility of losing a loved one. I feel very rewarding and satisfying when I help in CRS.

Cagimizin en ciddi hastaliklarinin başında gelen kanser hastaligiyla,bu hastalikla daha guclu savasilsin diye ve yakalanma olasiligi en alt seviyelere düşsün hatta keşke hic olmasin diye adeta cirpinan bu vakfin varligiyla gurur duyuyorum..! Bu kiymetli vakif görüldüğü uzere kanser ile mücadele ettiği bilinse de aslında farkinda olmadan diğer birçok hastaliga karsida bizlere rehber olan,saglikli gida tuketimi konusunda israrla bizi uyaran bu güzel yürekli insanlara teşekkürü bir borç bilirim..

Kotu yasam kosullari kotu beslenme,kotu aliskanliklar en basta kanseri tetiklemektedir.. saglikli nesil yetiştirmede gün geçtikçe yasanan güçlük geleceğimizi çok ciddi anlamda tehdit etmektedir.. İşte bu yüzden Canser Research Simplified iyi ki varsin..! İyi ki bizimlesin..!!! Yaptiginiz tüm calismalari ve birbirinden güzel kampanyaları yürekten destekliyorum..!

I didn't know what to expect at first but when I was introduce to the CRS by going to an event on a Sunday, I was really impressed . An introduction was made during lunch: it was simple, strait to the point and I learn a good bit about they organization and they expectations .i didn't feel that I came here to give money , it was a learning experience and meet people's from different field and country talking about this terrible deasise .
Keep it up CRS you are great.

I joined Cancer Research Simplified a while ago and have been very fond of my experience so far. I am one of the Turkish translators of the organization and the material I have translated so far is has been very informative and valuable, not only for the public I believe, but also for myself. I myself earn a lot from the information our organization provides the people with as well. We have a great mission and we are determined to make it real by working towards our goal patiently.

As a researcher, I find CRS goals so important for the cancer patients and their loved ones.
How many times normal people, not involved in science or medicine, need an answer to their questions about their disease or about how to prevent it or also what to do after survive to it?
Well, CRS is there for them, giving answers in a simplified way, understandable to everyone, moreover in 5 different languages. This is great project for the world community and I'm proud to be part of it.
