Review for Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, Irvine, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Of all the organizations that I have done volunteer work for, PCRF has the most dedicated, organized, focused, effective & efficient staff They help volunteers like myself realize how important it is to emotionally help these children & families that are coping with this disease, to give them a feeling of hope. And they do this in fun & creative ways through their events that bring much needed joy and activity to all family members. Making PCRF near & dear in my heart.

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

The increasing number of children now surviving this devastating disease.

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

Be very proud of their accomplishments! Seek out a PR firm to do pro bono work promoting their events and other projects.

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

Seeing the children & families come together to celebrate their joy of survival!

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

The most dedicated, caring and kind people. A special thank you to Nancy, Bonnie, Scott, Gina & Tom, for the endless hours of work, an awesome team!

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

Fund more research to save countless more children's lives.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to volunteer.

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

OC Marathon choosing the same date that PCRF has had for the past 11 years.

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

Nancy Franks, Director is truly an amazing person whose only goal is for these kids to have a better quality of life. She is an inspiration to us all! I would encourage anyone looking for a great charity to place their contributions, to choose PCRF!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
