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

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with leukemia in April 1989 at the age of 9. In June of 1989 I attended my first week of Heart Connection Camp. Since then, I have been both a camper and volunteer for this organization. All of my experiences with the Heart Connection are memories I cherish from a time in my life when most would probably think that I would rather have not have memories!
The Heart Connection provides services to children and young adults who are fighting or who have survived childhood cancer. I can't imagine that there is a better organization in the United States with the same mission.

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

Oncology Camper, oncology staff, volunteer

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

Strengthen their survivorship program

Role:  Client Served & I was a camper and have volunteered for this organization.
