My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Lazarex Cancer Foundation, Danville, CA, USA
I was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma in July 2018 and traveled to MD Anderson to become a patient of a top expert on MCL there. After I was on "watch and wait" for about 6 months, my doctor told me about an opening in a clinical trial that had been ongoing for 2 years with a 96% success rate of complete and partial remission for MCL. Based on all of my Internet research, these were the most promising results that ever occurred for MCL. Yet I wouldn't have been able to afford the travel back and forth from New Mexico to MD Anderson if Lazarex hadn't given me a grant to reimburse travel and hotel expenses. Lazarex is a great organization, and everyone I dealt with was compassionate and upbeat. The application process was not difficult and was based on financial need. I am so appreciative and grateful that Lazarex made it possible for me to take part in this trial!
