My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Victory Center, Toledo, OH, USA
In 2009, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. We were all shocked and didn't know what to do. We were given names of various organizations and decided to check out the Victory Center. We were welcomed with open arms when we came in - literally, Lynn and Penny were there to hug us, which was comforting. I was asked for advice and input and the support group and suggestions from the TVC staff and other patients were quite helpful. My mom is quiet and doesn't typically go places on her own so it took a while but we would go together to appointments but now she goes there on her own almost on a daily basis. The treatments (massage, facial, reflexology, reiki, healthy steps class, yoga etc) help relax her and keep her mind off the cancer, surgery and now the pain that still remains. My mom has also created new friendships with people in her knitting class - which is something she never did until she came to the Victory Center. So, I'd say the Victory Center has opened doors for my mom to explore and try things she's never done (belly dancing, knitting, etc.) The Victory Center has become my mom's "home" away from home. I don't know what my family would have done if we didn't find this gem right here in Toledo, Ohio. Thank you!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
She is more relaxed and realizes the importance of good health and well being and wants to go to the Victory Center everyday. It's on her daily schedule!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would want a bigger location for the Victory Center to better serve the community, add more programs and serve more people in need.
