Review for The Samfund, Boston, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The SAMFund has been my rock as I struggled to find funding after remission. There are very few organizations devoted solely to young adults even though young adults have seen little to no improvements in survivor rates. The SAMFund offers all areas of funding to help ease the mind and lift the burdens for cancer survivors such as myself. This group has given me more than funding they have given me the faith that there are people out there that see that cancer truly affects all ranges of people regardless of age.

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

my life through the assistance to continue seeing my doctor as well as aid in my tuition when I maxed out my student loans this year.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being able to spread the word about such a wonderful organization to other young adult survivors who feel that they are being excluded from many funding options.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazingly kind and understanding.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help more young adults with the necessities of their life in this awful economy. The rent payment or medical bill coverage can be a life saver and should be available to more people.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009
