I am actually a referral source to this great organization, & they have helped a number of my patients! They have gone above and beyond to try to help patients with cancer, and truly seem to understand the financial hardship the disease places on patients and their families. Because I was unable to get their assistance quick enough for one of my patients, they even helped with his funeral bill when he passed away before getting help with other bills. I think they really try to help the whole person in a caring & compassionate way.

I have referred several patients to this group for support, and they make personal contact with the patient to determine how best they can assist. On more than one occasion, they have gone above and beyond to assist my patients. One time they negotiated free tuition for a patient's child, then helped her with other bills. Another time, after helping a patient with some household bills upon which she had fallen behind, they coordinated with another charity to provide a car for my patient! Her car had broken down, and she was having a tough time getting to treatment and other places, and this gave her the ability to carry on, and boosted her spirits as well! I am so grateful to have an organization like Great Guys around for my patients!

This organization has been very responsive to the several requests that I have made on behalf of my patients and their families. The representatives are professional and have made it extremely pleasant and to reach out and ask for assistance even when none might have been readily available. It is a breath of fresh air when another colleague is willing to look outside of the box to consider ways of assisting others in need. This is rare but Amy Forkin has done this. And I thank her and Great Guys for allowing AND ENCOURAGING this kind of creative and reasonable thinking and action-taking. Thank you and Keep up the good work.

The Great Guys Group has been one of the main organizations I refer to when my patients need help. Their staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. They are able to help our patients without implying many of the restrictions that keep many people from getting the help they need. Many organizations provide assistance to only those who are destitute and have no resources at all. Most of our needy patients are not in that situation- most people have homes, cars, jobs and are just needing a little help to get by during a life-changing cancer experience. This is a great organization.

The Great Guys has been very responsive to cancer patients here at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson in Philadelphia, PA. The financial support that they provide for patients is so important to the well being of our patients and helps make their lives less stressful while going thru cancer treatment. I think the Great Guys are excellent! In this day, when most non-profits have reduced what they can give to patients, the Great Guys Fund is going strong!

I would like to take a moment to say how excited and proud I am of the work being done by The Great Guys Group. In my capacity as Vice President of The Living Through Cancer Foundation, I've had direct experience with Paul and his group. They have been extremely helpful to our organization. This group will continue to grow due to the hard work, and genuine passion for what they do. Thank you.
