Gwen Walker's Story
We have been members of the Cancer Support Community, formerly Gilda’s Club, since 2008. I was introduced to the club by my best friend Sandy, who was diagnosed with Thymic cancer. My friendship with Sandy spanned fifty years. Now faced with an uncertain future, Sandy had asked me and my husband to be part of her journey and to share the same learning experiences so we could all support, understand and comfort each other through her tough journey ahead. CSC was home to Sandy - it was the one place she felt safe. There was no doubt in our minds as we started this journey, that we would be touched by everyone who entered this community. We are honored to be among such a great group of professionals and members whose knowledge, compassion and devotion changes the lives of so many. I do what I can to stay connected, and as the welcoming red doors are always open so shall our hearts be to whoever needs it.
Thank you for all the wonderful years you have provided our family. Your support groups, workshops and social events have taught us how to effectively live with cancer in our lives. Your unwavering support has sustained us through very difficult times.
