Review for Partners For Breast Cancer Care Inc, Fort Myers, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A couple of years ago, a friend convinced my husband to be on the Board of this wonderful organization...one I'd never heard of in 12 years of living in Ft. Myers. I was so proud of my husband for accepting the position. Then I attended a couple of luncheons that they hosted as fundraisers and I was hooked. Truly hooked. Listening to the stories of people served by Partners for Breast Cancer Care, both men and women, was nothing short of remarkable. They told us how this group of dedicated folks changed, and saved, their lives. It is impossible to hear of their struggling journey without coming away changed yourself...and REALLY no way to be dry eyed. And then the doctors and caseworkers and other volunteers talked of their involvement and my faith in humanity was renewed. Now, I am so fortunate to be able to be part of this local organization that does so much with so little. In just a short time, I have been able to educate people around me about PfBCC, and they too are very excited to know that this type of assistance is available in our area...and only for people in our area. Many of them have said "How can I help?"

One of the first things I noticed being on the Board was that every person who volunteers does it simply because they want to help. We rarely make it through a meeting without having at least one emotional moment. They understand that helping even one person is helping our world a little at a time. It's just plain awesome.

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

Help them get the word out. There's a lot to do with not a lot of people to help.
