BOND VISITS GILDA’S CLUB

BOND members spent a September morning touring Gilda's Club,off 394, and learning that Gilda's Club is the only cancer support  organization in the Twin Cities to offer a dedicated homelike facilityfor everyone touched by cancer.

Gilda's Club was built this past April and is operated and funded locally. It is named for Gilda Ratner and resources are shared with the national organization.  The kitchen is used to demonstrate different ways of preparing foods and is a wonderful gathering place for cancer survivors.

Gilda's Club's membership consists ofcancer survivors, and this wonderful building provides a sanctuary for them to share their experiences,a library to gain knowledge, networking, workshops andsocial activities.  It is geared for women, men, teens andchildren along with their family and friends.

The best medicine can sometime be emotional supportfor people living with cancer.  Gilda Radner was quoted assaying that “membership in this club is something you may nothave chosen.... but one that you are in.”

Anne Josten is shown giving some of our BOND members a tour of Gilda's Club which is a cancer support community.  The red door is a sign of hope, healing and humor.

Shown with Anne are Judy Serrell, Sybil Katz, Phyllis Simon, who organized the program, and Millie Segal.
