My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA
The world of nonprofits devolves into 2 hemispheres, both wanting money. Those that care and those that don't. How does one identify the caring? I look for the little people-centered things. Lung cancer is horrifyingly frightening, especially for the newly diagnosed. A free lung cancer helpline staffed with a knowledgable and caring person is a little thing of enormous benefit. An online, available-to-the-world, presence were patients and their caregivers can ask tough questions and get thoughtful answers, almost in real time, is a little thing of enormous benefit. Offering a tenured lung cancer survivor to mentor, guide and assist someone struggling with lung cancer is a little thing of enormous benefit. These little but vastly important things focused at the individual lung cancer survivor or caregiver are evidence of the Lungevity Foundation's nonprofit excellence.
