MEMBER PROFILE
Delores Cardon
The love and support of family is the common theme through Delores Cardon's cancer stories. She's had breast cancer twice, and though she lost more hair the second time around and her family again experienced the fear and anxiety that come with a cancer diagnosis, both Delores and her daughter Kathleen say the second time was much easier than the first.

"The first time, we didn't know what to expect. Mom was sick and nauseous every day," Kathleen says. "And we hadn't gotten her to Gilda's Club yet."

Now, Delores and her family rave about the comprehensive support they found at our Clubhouse. >>

PROGRAM FEATURE
A Stellar Year for Gilda’s Club Teens
This past year was an amazing year for teen involvement at Gilda's Club Westchester, and on Monday, May 7th we held our first Teen Recognition Night to honor those teens who participated in our program and volunteered their time and talents to further our mission. Our Youth Committee helped us fundraise and volunteer at big events and our annual Teen Essay Contest garnered many poignant submissions from young people impacted by cancer. In addition to choosing a winner for the contest, we created a Red Door Teen Award this year to honor a teen who has made a positive impact on the Gilda's Club Westchester community.
