Last year’s greeting centered on optimism and purpose in our expansion to St. Clair Shores and Detroit. Pure Determination.
Wow, did 2020 ever give us all a fresh dose of determination.
A pandemic is unsettling. A pandemic with a cancer diagnosis is paralyzing. Gilda’s Club took a deep breath and followed the sage words: When there is no wind, we row.
Overnight, we moved more than 40 weekly support groups, education, navigation and wellness programs to HIPPA-compliant virtual platforms. Gilda’s has reengineered to meet evolving needs to care for our families.
Our new operational format and enhanced programming will ensure we emerge from the pandemic environment, stronger and smarter.
We have all been blanketed with uncertainty. The most vulnerable among us are counting on us. And we are counting on you.
Thank you for your trust and your commitment so that no one faces cancer alone.
Be well, safe and optimistic,
Laura Varon Brown
Executive Director & CEO
