Review for GILDAS CLUB SEATTLE, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined GIlda's Club Seattle when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was able to bring my children, who had lots of questions about cancer and why this was happening to us. I joined a parents group, in order to get support on how to help my kids while I was going through treatment. I learned so much from the caring staff and other members that I now activley volunteer and am on the Board of Gilda's. I now refer anyone touched by cancer to Gilda's for FREE support.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My kids and I came through my cancer trement just fine, my kids often bring up Gilda's and how much they appreciated being able to go there when they needed it most.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I met so many folks dealing with cancer, it opened my eyes to how people react to different situations.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Fun, wonderful, kind and caring

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Burn the mortgage and offer more FREE programs. Not have to make difficult budget cuts.
