Participants’ Testimonials


Thank you so much for everything! you are there for me, sometimes also from the other side of the planet. You are there to hear me vent about my pain and discomforts, and never get tired of hearing these things again and again, as if you are hearing it, every time, for the first time. And then you call ME a hero. Thank you!


Hi, We just wanted to thank you for all your unconditional help and support to [patient] and to our family. We all appreciate your kindness and help during the difficult time. You are true angels. Thanks for making the difficult time, more pleasant and easier for her and the family.


I will never have enough to repay Stand By Me for the help they gave me in the most needed time of my family life.


Your incredible team is so wonderful and has given my parents so much confidence in the will to fight. It's incredible. I cannot thank you enough for just picking up the phone and talking to my mom and dad and letting them know that you care, asking if there's anything you can do, and actually doing so many wonderful things. The home visits, sitting down with them and taking your time to drink a hot cup of tea and having a conversation, even if it's just for a half an hour, and not asking for anything in return, is absolutely remarkable.


Thank you and your incredible team for all that you do. You have given my parents confidence to move forward through this terrible time fighting this treacherous disease. I cannot thank you enough.

Volunteers’ Testimonials


I have been volunteering with Stand By Me for five years. I heard about the organization from a friend and I love the idea of helping somebody else. When you go to a patient's house and he smiles at you, it's worth everything. I saw a patient in the market and she said out loud that this organization gives her life and strength. It is holy work with a lot of patience, love and endless giving.


We are one big family and we all need each other. Stand By Me provides that human touch and compassion. It is in this way that we strengthen our community and reach towards recovery.
