During This Season of Giving Thanks

During November and December, we are bombarded with messages encouraging us to be thankful, grateful, and count our blessings. This practice is believed to increase positive mental health and good feelings. At Gilda’s Club, we understand that when you or someone you care about has cancer, you might not be feeling grateful or thankful – therefore, our motto at the clubhouse is “come as you are”. On good days, tough days, and all those in between, our cancer support community is here for you. We hope you enjoy a glimpse into what the Gilda’s team is feeling thankful for…
