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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with the Heart Connection since I was diagnosed with Leukemia in 1989 at the age of 9. The Heart Connection is the bright spot in a very hard time in many children's lives. The Heart Connection focuses on not just the cancer fighter, but the siblings and parents too. Programs are in place to support the needs of the entire family throughout and after their cancer fight. I have made numerous friends who continue to be very special to me through the survivorship program. I also volunteer for this wonderful organization every chance I get.

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

myself and my family. My family volunteers and participates in Heart Connection Programs.

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

be sure to keep the mission of the Heart Connection the top priority.

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

being a mentor for other young cancer fighters.

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

one of a kind.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to volunteer for The Heart Connection.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

pressure to change the name of the organization.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
