My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Cancer Response Team, Phoenix, AZ, USA
Why we started Cancer Response Team.
As a father, I have experienced the heartbreaking agony of losing my precious 13 year old daughter from brain cancer. When my daughter, Ashley, was first diagnosed with cancer, we were shocked, felt helpless and like most parents we trusted her doctors to cure her disease. My daughter went through the traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments that were recommended by medical doctors and we followed the standard protocol that cancer patients are given. Naturally we were new to this and knew nothing about cancer cures and simply trusted a “one sided” opinion about a cure. While our daughter went through countless treatments, we found out that so many other successful alternative treatments are available. By the time we were made aware of other alternatives, it was too late for our daughter to pursue these treatments since chemotherapy and radiation had already done much harm to her body and the cancer had spread. This meant that for us, successful alternative treatment were not an option anymore. As a father, I was upset, for not being made aware of other options we could have chosen for our daughter. I want to keep the promise that I made to Ashley that I would start a nonprofit organization to help children that have been diagnosed with cancer and to inform the public on proven successful alternative treatments. I do not want any parent to see and experience the struggle and pain my daughter had to endure. This is why we have dedicated ourselves to start this great nonprofit organization “Cancer Response Team”.
We firmly believe that every individual should have choices and options when forced to face the crisis of a cancer diagnosis of a loved one. Families finding themselves in this heartbreaking situation should have the opportunity to carefully consider a variety of different alternative treatments. They should be allowed and encouraged to choose the treatment plan that best fits the family.
It’s our greatest desire to inform and update the public on many effective alternative cancer treatment options by providing resources that are available outside of the conventional treatments. Chemotherapy and radiation are not your only options! It is not at all our intent to discriminate against someone who chooses chemotherapy or radiation, however CRT pledges to provide needed financial assistance to support families when alternative therapy is chosen. It's disturbing that alternative treatment options are most often declined or not even recognized by traditional insurance policies, especially since the success rate on many alternative treatments are overwhelmingly positive.
In a nutshell, CRT is all about providing hope for families while focusing on the child’s remission. We are 100% committed to assist financially with the alternative treatment costs until we can one day celebrate the child’s remission and a new chance at a healthy and fulfilling life.
