Patricia Lee, Founder - President of United Cancer Survivors of America, Inc. is welcoming any college or university Public Relations graduate to do an internship with her nonprofit. She recently worked with the PR department at the University of Alabama and they gave her the idea. Ms. Lee says, "The PR grads at the University of Alabama were extremely professional with incredibly creative ideas. They are the ones who suggested I open my door for other PR grads to get involved with us and offer them an internship. Our programs are now open to all 50 states so getting involved with the colleges and universities is a perfect way for us to spread the word about the nonprofit but help young people too and, of course, I am all about helping others. My daughter, Alex Avram, is a PR grad from Alabama so this involvement with the university started with her. God continues to open doors for us and I feel truly blessed. Any PR grad interested in the internship should write to PRInternship(at)UnitedCancerSurvivorsofAmerica(dot)org"
The nonprofit's mission statement is "A unique Nationwide nonprofit that provides college scholarships and additional assistance to enrich the lives of those who have survived and been affected by cancer." They have two scholarship programs; Students Of Survivors and Athletes Kickin' Cancer. One winner is selected annually for each program. However, it is their ultimate goal to award two scholarships per state annually. They are working toward offering a financial assistance program for those currently going through medical treatment for cancer and are currently seeking grants to implement that program.
The nonprofit has held several different fundraisers locally. They are mostly known for their SOS Music Fest which is normally held at the nationally known music venue WorkPlay Theatre, Inc., in Birmingham. Artists volunteer to play and some of those artists include the new upcoming rock band, EveryDay But Friday.
