Review for The Heart Connection, Des Moines, IA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been involved in this awesome organization since 1994 when our son was diagnosed with Leukemia. We have been involved as a board member, a volunteer and our family has been the recipient of the wonderful benefits provided by the Children's Cancer Connection. Matt was a camper for many years and always intentely watched the mail each year, eagerly watching for the camp application.

This is just a phenomenal organization with wonderful caring people involved in the leadership, the organizational structure and as the volunteers that make the organization work.

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

seeing how the children and their families are so grateful for all the programs and sharing that the leaders and volunteers of the Children's Cancer Connection provide to benefactor children and their families.

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

Keep it pretty much as it is. It serves a wonderful niche in giving children living with cancer and their families the opportunity for much needed respite time and time to live again in a world without cancer even if for just a few days or hours at a time.

Role:  Volunteer & Have helped fundraise, chaperone their mid-year reunion, served on the board, ect.
