Why I support this cause

Growing up in Jamaica cancer was an illness that no one talked about, much less seek support from their community.  A cancer diagnosis was more of isolation and a death sentence. I watched by beloved grandfather passed from the horrific disease. However I was comforted in knowing that he was surrounded by family and good friends. 

Many individuals faced with this illness are not as fortunate to have a support system.  Gilda's Club South Florida is available to you as a source of comfort that provides individual and group counseling, as well as an array of other support services – all at NO charge.  For those with a family unit, this organization is another source of support to help the family members adjust and learn how to cope and help their love one during treatment and remission. 

I choose to support Gilda’s Club South Florida because I see first-hand what it has done for individuals and families.  I see smiling faces on children in remission and members building bonds among each other.  I don’t know what my future holds, but I a comforted knowing that there will be support for myself and my family should I be faced with this illness.
