Why I Volunteer

I am a 2 year survivor of stage 3c low grade serous ovarian cancer. My cancer was found when I went in for a procedure with my OB. I had not been having any symptoms, so of course it was a shock! I had two surgeries followed by six rounds of chemotherapy. My journey with volunteering here began shortly after my diagnosis. I was looking to connect with others that were going through or had gone through my similar experience. I began by regularly attending gentle yoga with Barb at Deaconess Chancellor Center while I was going through chemo treatments. I attended a few other events offered at the clubhouse but found that volunteering and getting out into the community to spread the word about what Gilda’s has to offer to everyone affected by cancer is what I really loved. I am also involved with the Thrive Tribe, Peer to Peer Support as well. It is fulfilling to connect with others who are just starting their cancer journey and answering any questions they have or by just simply listening to them. About a year into volunteering, my daughter started her freshman year at Signature school and needed a way to meet her service hour requirement. That’s when volunteering became a family affair! If you ever drive by the clubhouse on a Sunday morning, you may see us out there tidying up the landscaping and flower beds!
