Gilda Toronto’s story

Gilda Radner believed everyone navigating cancer should have access to comprehensive psychosocial cancer support through therapeutic programs delivered by mental health professionals. Because it’s not just about getting through cancer – it’s about living, while living with cancer.

Knowing you are not alone – Jessica’s camp story

I wanted to make memories with my kids. We came away with little carved wooden discs with our names and pictures we drew. We went away with such a positive experience, and we have these little things around our house. We have such lasting positive memories, which, during cancer and chemo, are sometimes hard to find.
