Community is such a powerful word. It is a reminder of the importance of human contact and the support of others. Feelings of loneliness and isolation, that we’ve all probably experienced recently, are a frequent reality for most cancer patients as a result of their diagnosis. Add the fear and uncertainty of COVID-19 and this loneliness and isolation are compounded even further. That sense of community that members retreat to behind our red door is needed now more than ever.
Cancer cannot be put on hold, and neither can our mission. We have adapted our programs to a virtual platform so we can continue to empower, strengthen and sustain those in our community that are impacted by cancer until the need for social distancing no longer exists.
Number 529 is a very important number. Gilda’s Club QC is Bird #529. Your gift of just $40 provides a month of support for one member. A $500 gift will cover all the services for one member for an entire year. And, what’s great about donating through the Birdies for Charity program, is that your gift will receive a minimum 5% match, making your gift have even more impact.
