Review for American Cancer Society Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I found out that I had stage 2 colorectal cancer in 2010. I had surgery to remove 8 inches of my colon and 2 inches of my rectum. I was declared cancer free. But a year later my follow up colonoscopy showed I had both cancers again. This time I had stage 3B colorectal cancer, went through weeks of daily radiation therapy, carried a chemo pump which continuously pumped chemo into me. Then I had all of my colon and rectum surgically removed with chemotherapy afterwards. I lived, even though most people with my condition do not (about 90% do not live with colorectal cancer with those stages twice). Not once did the American Cancer Society help me. Not one thin dime. And since there have not been any direct research funded by this organization recently that has helped cure colorectal cancer, I have decided to let people in my area, Lawrence, Kansas, know that their money donated for cancer help would be better spent elsewhere.

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

Direct more funds to actually help patients of cancer.
