Review for Cancer Schmancer Foundation, Reston, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Thank you to Fran and her team at Cancer Schmancer Foundation, for making some noise and progress in the fight for early detection of cancer! I fight for my mom, as she is no longer here to fight for herself. 2 years of misdiagnosis can not be tollerated; there are simple and effective tests, a CA 125 or abdominal ultrasound, that would have caught my hero's ovarian cancer BEFORE it spread. Instead Mom was sent away time and time again because her "pain" was not great enough. Many ovarian, cervical, uterine cancers cause discomfort/bloating..not pain! Make noise, be heard, don't take no as an answer, Know your body and speak your mind!!

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

Fran's ability to work with the media and draw great and needed attention to these isues.

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

Offer/work with med schools/nursing programs to educate medical professionals to early diagnostic tools associated with "female" cancers.

Role:  Donor & worked with my mom to find treatments .
