Review for Breast Cancer Options Inc, Kingston, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The reason that I an proud to serve on BCO's Advisory Board is that I have known the organization and its work for many years. BCO provides comprehensive services and is very hands on -- they educate, advocate, and most importantly, personally assist anyone with a diagnosis of breast cancer day or night, twenty four seven. I have volunteered at their annual Breast Cancer Options Conference and been very impressed with the caliber of workshops, topics, and speakers they are able to attract. They offer support groups throughout the Hudson Valley and make presentations on any number of valuable topics anytime/anywhere when asked. They do their research and share it through one of the largest educational websites about breast cancer on the web. They also publish an amazing resource book and an annual calendar that are chock full of information. On a personal level, I have referred more newly diagnosed, terrified people than one would wish they would have to in the last twelve years to BCO. To a one they have come back to me with nothing but praise and a much more secure and hopeful outlook. BCO is an organization that has to be experienced to be believed.

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

I have experienced this organization as a healthcare professional in the past, as a donor, volunteer, and advisory board member.

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

see to it that it had more funding so that it could reach even more people with breast cancer diagnoses.

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

BCO's professionalism, dedication, and follow through on the personal level with anyone I have referred to them.

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

Totally dedicated and well informed.

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

Continue even stronger to the day that breast cancer is finally defeated.

Ways to make it better...

I cannot imagine that my experience could be any more positive.

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

funding, funding, and funding.
