Review for Fight Colorectal Cancer, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have so much respect for the amazing women behind Fight CRC, most notably Carlea, Kate & Kim - but i am sure there are others I've not been in direct contact with. I have been in contact with them regularly since 2007 when my stepdaughter's mother was first diagnosed. She continues her battle today, and there hasn't been a time in the last 5 years when Fight CRC hasn't been there for me when I reached out to them. Whether it was for personal emotional support as I sought to most effectively support my family; financial advice for my friend from the answer line (which incidently proved very fruitful at the time); financial assistance by way of offering inexpensive items for purchase that we used for a fundraiser; or medical support by way of providing the lastest information regarding the newest advances in treatments, dealing with side-effects, and their many informative webinars. Adiitionally, I've felt empowered as a constituent by their provision of easy access to address our politicians regarding current legislature pertaining to CRC, and cancer research & funding in general. They truly live up to their mission statement, to educate and support patients, push for changes in policy that will increase and improve research, and to empower survivors (as well as family members, caregivers, etc). It is hard to say enough good things about this organization, the individuals behind it & all they have done for me & my family! I'm honestly not sure how I would have coped with all we've been through without them, or to whom I could have turned if they did not exist.

How did you find this group?

My friend who is the patient was given their business card at one of her first Dr. Appt's after being diagnosed. It had their signature star pin attached, so she picked up a couple of extra ones for family. But instead of just wearing the pin, I read the card & became involved!
