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

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I have been involved with PCRF for a number of years. The work that this organization is sponsoring is phenomenal. Over the years, we have been deeply moved by the hundreds of personal testamonials that young people have presented to provide a first hand view of the wonderful advances in treatment and care that the Foundation has made possible. At the heart of PCRF and its work are a multitude of active, caring and extremely generous volunteers.

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

the heart warming and encouraging testamonials of young surviving patients

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

Do very little differently. They are warmly efficient, care and effective in addressing the goals of this organization

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

Seeing the courageous young people who have and continued to battle cancer in its various forms, and hearing them explain what they have been able to achieve through the support of this organization.

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

Extremely competent and generous. It takes a great deal of personal commitment to be an active player in the work of a non-profit, primarily volunteer staffed organization. The staff of PCRF are wonderfully upbeat and caring.

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

Excellerate the concentrated quests for the root causes of cancer and in the development of new and progressively more effective approaches to treatment.

Ways to make it better...

We had lived in the Orange County area.

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

Maintaining the positive and productive relationships with the research and care providing institutions that PCRF is supporting. Effectively reaching out to pediatric patients and their families to keep in constant contact with them and their needs.

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

Over our lives, my wife and I have been directly or peripherally involved with a large number of non-profit organizations. Among all of these, PCRF seems to be the most successful and best run.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & My wife served as a volunteer work at several fundraising activities. I assisted in some of these events and set up, maintained and collected PCRF's annual Xmas card kiosks at grocery store locations in our area.
