I struggled and needed to talk about what I was going through. The give and take in the group support sessions were remarkable. I got a lot more out of it than I ever anticipated from Gilda's Toronto.
I was in a “warrior” state but knew I needed more than the medical treatment and found it at Gilda’s Toronto.
“Congratulations to Gilda’s Club on the work that’s been done with its Resilient Communities Fund grant,” said Jessica Bell, MPP for University-Rosedale. “Your ongoing work supporting and empowering people affected by cancer is critical. Thank you for your commitment and dedication throughout the pandemic and beyond.”
Please join us to celebrate on June 21, 2022, at 7 p.m. EST for the premiere of the Teen Documentary Collective, a result of 10 months of collaboration, commitment and creativity between participants of the Teen Talk peer-support program at Gilda's Toronto.
