One Gift Can Change a Life

Jake’s Story

It was a warm May day when my mom told my brothers and I she had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Six rounds of chemo and several surgeries later, I’m still not sure how she got through it. At some point, I heard her talking about Gilda’s Club. I can still see her going out the door with her hats and scarves on her head and her coming home saying how helpful it was to talk to people who were going through the same thing. At Gilda’s Club, she was able to meet people who understood.

Gilda’s Club was a lifesaver for my mom. She lives with four men and none of us knew what to say and we could never find the words to help her. At Gilda’s Club, she got the support she was needing.
