Review for Cricketts Answer for Cancer, York, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I learned about Crickett's Answer for Cancer through Carole Trone's Facebook posts on various breast cancer pages. She is the VP of the organization, and constantly reaches out to breast cancer patients in need so that she can offer the services of her nonprofit. The warmth and genuine caring that Carole offers on behalf of her organization is unparalleled, and something that is not always possible in large nonprofits. I have seen quite a few subsequent posts from clients who have received wigs or lymphedema garments from Crickett's Answer for Cancer, and their gratitude and appreciation are obvious. It might seem a little thing to boost someone's appearance when they have lost their hair or had a breast removed, but CAFC helps women regain their sense of self. As a clinical care coordinator who deals with these patients daily, I can tell you that this group is making a very real and vital difference in the daily lives of their clients. Kudos to Carole and her aunt for putting these women first!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Dealing with a client who received a wig, and in hearing positive comments from members of an online support group I run for breast cancer patients.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


What is unique about this organization?

The officers of the nonprofit do not take ANY salaries. Every dollar they raise above their very minimal expenses goes immediately to help a breast cancer patient in need. CAFC desperately needs the community's financial support to continue to fund all the requests they receive.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & Referred a client to this organization.
