Review for Concern Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I cannot begin to express my enthusiasm and profound respect for this organization!

I have been volunteering with them for the past several years and have watched patients and their families experience so many wonderful benefits from their connection to the Concern Foundation. It has been nothing short of an honor to be a part of the process.

Patients and their respective families that are connected to the Concern Foundation not only receive financial assistance, but they also have a built-in community of support via fellow patients, volunteers and employees of the organization. It is a safe place to be expressive and vulnerable but also to discover strength, persistence, gratitude and love.

The Concern Foundation is lacking in pretense, but provides joy and hope in abundance. They provide exceptional annual events for their pediatric Cancer patients ranging from a fun-filled day of adventure at Universal Studios to their incredible holiday celebration. Their fundraising is done with supreme generosity and unparalleled methdologies such as the block party or the 5k.

I am incredibly proud to be a part of the community that Derek Alpert and his team have built (and continue to build.) They are among the people that I consider extraordinary in this life. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for inspiring my continued commitment to their cause because I have witnessed first-hand the courage, compassion and energy that they bestow on the people that need them most.
