In Reply to: maybe a dumb question... posted by Laura on November 13, 2000 at 18:38:53:
: I hope this isn't too dumb of a question. My husband and I are giving donations in people's names for Christmas gifts this year. We have different organizations in mind for different people. There are a couple folks for whom we'd like to give donations to cancer research (they are stuggling with cancer now). #1 is this a dumb idea... do you think they would appreciate it? #2 is there any organization that would be better to donate to than others? any to avoid? seems the only one I've really heard of is American Cancer Society. Any help appreciated
When I was dx with endo cancer last December I contacted the American Cancer Society. There are absolutely no words to explain how wonderful and helpful they are. They act like you are the only person they are dealing with. They will research for you, send you info and they always follow up. I know this has to be an expensive endeavor and I would not hesitate to donate to them.
