Review for Melanoma International Foundation, Glenmoore, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with Melanoma and had to have a WLE on 11/11/08. At 41 it was the scariest thing I had ever dealt with to date. I found the Melanoma Internation foundation and I still write in, Katherine Poole and other melanoma patients always respond with kind heartfelt honest responses. I have met two different women on this website that I speak to separately. I honestly don't know what I would have done without this site, it was a lifesaver over and over again. I LOVE this site it is the best site I ever found for my melanoma, by far!

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

helping me get through the issues you deal with when told you have a melanoma diagnosis.

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

do the same thing Katherine Poole does, respond personally to the emails.

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

The responses are quick, honest and real, these people have all had the disease or had it in their family, they know!

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


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

Help all people understand melanoma, the risks the fact that it can be very deadly, Frank McCourt the author just died of melanoma, people need to know more about this disease, how to look for it, everything.

Ways to make it better...

none it was perfect.

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

If it grows then they won't get the personal attention unless they get others that have had it to be responders, educated responders, perhaps physicicans, or some people like that.

One thing I'd also say is that...

HONESTLY THIS SITE SAVED MY EMOTIONAL STATE SO MANY TIMES, they make you feel like your normal again, like there are others feeling the same way.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
