Would you recommend American Cancer Society?

by MICHELE S. from ALBUQUERQUE, NM (August 22, 2016)
This was the best event I have ever volunteered for him all of the workers volunteering and staff were friendly and outgoing and it was amazing to meet all of the people that were Survivors. I would gladly volunteer for them again anytime in the future.
