Review for The Next Step Fund, Inc., Cambridge, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the honor of being helped by the AWESOME staff at Next Step. When I was 39, I was diagnosed with cancer. No one is ever ready to hear those words, I don't care how old (or young) you are. Next Step put me in touch with other young adults who were going through the same physical and mental feelings I was, and what I relief that was. I WAS NOT ALONE!!! What is even better is now that I am no longer considered a "young adult" they still keep in touch and actually care so much about you as a person. You are not forgotten, or just a statistic... you mean something special to them... and you make real friendships through their program. My experience was, and still is priceless!!! They will always hold a special place in my heart!!!

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

Boston... through Dana Farber... It changed how I felt about my cancer and made me feel better because I could talk to others who were experiencing the same things.

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

give them more money to help more people!!!!

Role:  Client Served & I was a client at one of their weekend cancer getaways. .
