In December of 2017, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Obviously, this was a tremendously stressful time for myself and my family. When faced with a cancer diagnosis, it is difficult to know where to turn for reliable information as well as emotional support. My family and I were so fortunate to be able to seek help from The Gathering Place in Westlake, Ohio. From their website: The Gathering Place offers a wide variety of free programs and services addressing the emotional, physical, spiritual and social needs of individuals and families currently coping with the impact of cancer in their lives. We provide support to individuals and their family and friends at time of diagnosis, during treatment and after treatment has ended.
Just our family alone, has used their resources many times over. Everyone that I have met there is warm and welcoming! Therefore, it was an easy decision for me to start a campaign to raise funds for this wonderful local charity. Please consider donating to this worthy cause so that they can continue to offer all types of support and programing to anyone who needs it!
