Review for Israel Cancer Association Usa, West Palm Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Israel Cancer Association continues to offer a fabulous return for every dollar that is raised and forwarded to our scientists in Israel. The scientists there continue to focus on patient care and curing without the burden of looking over their shoulders to worry about legal wrangling. The curing/resolution of cancer issues is paramount for these superbly-educated scientists.

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

seeing and reading of significant and novel ways to attack the disease through innovative research and methods

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

work on greater exposure to what we do

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

interaction with a strong board who is attuned to the issues and share a common goal in funding advanced research

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed to a greater goal

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

greatly expand its research activity to take a longer term view to the more advanced and time-consuming research.

Ways to make it better...

we had a broader base of contributors with higher vixsibility Corporate participants

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

distancing us from some"cancer" organizations who are more concerned with the social life of charities and instead of focusing on new procedures and research are bogged down with old techniques in new"wrappers"

One thing I'd also say is that...

the "bang-for-the buck" researcher in Israel is a much better investment in high priced work done in some of the areas where overhead and posturing eat up the bulk of the available dollars
