Review for ICAN, International Cancer Advocacy Network, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began as a Media Relations & Lobbying Volunteer in July 2010 & love it! My most interesting project was a legislative letter writing campaign urging Pennsylvania state legislators to approve equal insurance coverage for oral chemotherapy medicine. The majority of my projects have involved researching cancer articles & collecting media contact information. I studied public relations in college & am trying to get accepted to the Master's program at ASU West. I am in a wheelchair & can't handle a full-time job outside the home. Part-time, paid work in P.R. was too difficult to find. This was the best way to get my start in public relations. I am eternally grateful to Marcia Horn for giving me that chance!

Review for Khadarlis, Providence, RI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am in a wheelchair & can't handle a full-time job outside the home. Khadarlis has been a great place to get my start in grant writing. I started in May, 2011 & have written 3 grants, so far. It is very interesting work & I'm blessed to have a place that let's me learn as I go. While none of my grants have been officially approved yet I look forward to learning from possible denials. Aisha is the best-her passion, enthusiasm & energy are enviable! She is also very supportive & just wrote a grad school recommendation letter for me. The only real down side is phone tag. But that's inevitable, I live in Arizona. Looking forward to several more years at Khadarlis!
