Review for Cancer Fund of America, Inc., Mesa, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a caregiver for the client, if not for the efforts of the Cancer Fund of America she would be dead. More often than not they would send something that was desperately needed. OTC medications kept her out of the hospital, the vitimins kept her alive while she did not want to eat, (i.e. a partial blockage in her bowels left her with very little area to digest; however, she gets the vitimins down easily and it's kept her alive), the small flashlight may seem like nothing to you but when the power went out and her oxygen condenser turned off having that flashlight prevented an all out panic attack and let her know she was safe. The DVDs provided a distraction because she is unable to get out of bed, the other small gifts do the same, she looks over the cards and packages, huggs the stuffed snowman as though its the most precious thing in the world, uses the powder and lotions every day - it makes her feel more alive as though there is hope and someone dose care. Words can not express just how wonderful the people and service provided by the Cancer Fund of America is, I know without them she would not be the same person. Thank you and remember, they are NOT the American Cancer Foundation but THE CANCER FUND OF AMERICA THAT CARES FOR AND SERVES THE PUBLIC.

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

the packages sent to the patient have been wonderful, it's as though they know exactly what will be needed and send it.

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

ensure they never run out of anything, they are amazing, do a wonderful job by careing professional people.

Role:  Client Served & I am a caregiver for a cancer patient.
