Review for The Pap Corps Champions for Cancer Research, Deerfield Bch, FL, USA
I have been with The Pap Corps for several years. I started out as a volunteer and continued to a full-time employee. What led me to The Pap Corps was purely personal. I am a cancer survivor, and lost my husband and both parents to cancer. I sought out an organization in which I could give back to others the strength that I had gained - to others going through the same challenges. Over the years, I have come to know and love the volunteers who give their time, and their hearts and souls to fundraising for cancer research, most of whom are cancer survivors or who have lost loved ones to this dreadful disease. The Pap Corps partners with The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and each year, presents a check to Sylvester, representing the funds we raised, making up a very large portion of the breakthroughs in cancer research being done at Sylvester by their amazing physicians and medical staff.
In 2018, Sylvester earned the prestigious "NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE" ("NCI") designation. Sylvester joins a highly select group as one of only two NCI-designated cancer centers in the state of Florida, and one of just 71 across the nation. The Pap Corps was instrumental in making this happen.
Most of us have been touched by cancer in one way or another. As we look forward to a future to eradicate cancer in our lifetime, The Pap Corps is one non-profit organization that should be on the top of everyone's list in which to donate.
