The Friends of Gilda’s Society Nova Scotia is in the earliest stages of development. We are a dedicated group of people from all walks of life who have been touched by cancer. What brings us together is the drive to reduce the effects of cancer in our province, and our desire to bring the highest standard of psychosocial support to those living with the effects of cancer.
Our goal is to create a place where men, women, teens, children, and friends and family who are living with cancer can come together and support each other. This place will be home-like and comfortable, and will host support groups, lectures and workshops, and most importantly, social events for anyone affected by cancer. Programs for children, teens, and young adults will be available, as well as those for parents, newly diagnosed, survivors, and friends and family, so that no one goes through cancer alone. And best of all, this place will be free of charge.
We invite you to join us at this exciting time as we work to build our support community.
