MEMBER PROFILE
Ana, Stephanie, Cindy
A Community Partnership
Ana Yee has been a career services counselor at Berkeley College for 25 years. She has helped countless students find work-study programs, volunteer opportunities, internships, and careers. But it wasn't until she was diagnosed with endometrial sarcoma in 2006 that she came into contact with us – and the seeds of a long and successful partnership among Ana, Berkeley College, and Gilda's Club Westchester were planted.

Now, through work-study, the Berkeley Cares organization, and other volunteer opportunities, Berkeley students and staff are giving back to their community and supporting individuals and families touched by cancer. »

PROGRAM FEATURE
Stella with a group of children
Therapeutic Support from a Furry Friend
Have you met Stella? This adorable pup is much more than a pet – as a registered therapy dog, Stella provides comfort and support to children and families touched by cancer. At Gilda's Club Westchester, we know that sometimes people need more than human support, and Stella provides just that.

As Jen Scully, our children, teens and families manager, says: "Her impact on the kids in our program is immeasurable. It goes beyond noticing a sad and lonely face turn to a smile. It goes beyond a shy child who's never spoken about cancer who suddenly sits with Stella and tells us about her dad who is going through chemotherapy."
