Community is such a powerful word. This year has been interesting to say the least where the support of those in our community has been more crucial than ever, especially those with a cancer diagnosis. Life for many was put on hold as we faced this pandemic and that included thousands of people putting off routine cancer screenings.
It is predicted that over the next 5 years we will see an increase in late stage cancer diagnosis as a result of missed screenings and reductions in oncology essential diagnostic services due to the pandemic.
Our services are needed now more than ever. Gilda’s club is in the process of expanding to reach even more people. We recently opened our location at UnityPoint Heath-Trinity in Moline and hope to have our new location at Genesis Health Systems in Davenport opened by the end of the year, giving those in our community greater access.
Your gift of just $40 provides one month of support for one member. Or, a $500 gift will cover the services for one member for the 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.
Will you join us and be a part of our community? Your generosity will provide psycho-social support, education and hope to those that are living with cancer.
