YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Area women struggling with breast or ovarian cancer understand why Support Connection has been honored with a prestigious 2015 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits.
Support Connection provides free support services, such as counseling, support groups and other programs, to people affected by breast and ovarian cancer.
The award presented, by GreatNonprofits, is based on the large number of positive reviews Support Connection received -- online reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients.
People posted their personal experiences with the organization. For example, one woman, a cancer survivor who reached out to Support Connection, wrote: “I contacted Support Connection and it was the best call I made in my life. My counselor listened to my fears and concerns and understood exactly what I was feeling. She has supported me through rough times and happier times. I would speak to her as I was going through my journey. It is 6 ½ years since that first call and still today I am supported by this remarkable organization.”
Support Connection Executive Director Katherine Quinn says: “We are honored to receive this award again. We are especially pleased because it’s based on reviews from the people who know us best: those who have volunteered for or donated to us, and most importantly, people who reached out to us and found the help, understanding and guidance they needed to get through some of the toughest challenges anyone can face. ” Quinn adds “In 2016, Support Connection will celebrate 20 years of providing free breast and ovarian cancer support services. We are proud of our accomplishments. With continued support from our donors and the community, we look forward to many more years of fulfilling this important mission.”
