Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

LUNGevity has given me a place to receive and give on-line support to others impacted by lung cancer - be they patients, survivors, caregivers, family, or friends. Being able to find others who have been through the same or similar treatment has been a great resource. I am particularly grateful that this site maintains a respectful attitude to different opinions. I'm guessing the site moderators have a hand in that. Katie Brown's attitude of loving kindness permeates the discussions.

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

my ability to maintain a balanced approach to my health care.

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

the laughter and kindness shared by posters.

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

go a long way towards funding an effective screening for early detection of lung cancer and improve survival rates.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2010

Role:  Client Served & I participated in on-line discussions.
 

Review for Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

GRACE has been a most valuable source of information and education throughout my lung cancer journey. The generosity of the doctors (and fellow travelers) of their time and knowledge is remarkable. You can find inspiration and personal experiences here and elsewhere. You can find data and facts here and elsewhere. But to find a place that can answer questions knowledgeably and translate the data into words that I can understand? GRACE is the place. GRACE has made me a much better informed patient and has made it far easier for me to have valuable discussions with my oncologist during our appointments.

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

my understanding of treatment options for advanced lung cancer.

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

offer the same personalized assistance to people with other medical conditions.
