Toronto - Gilda's Club. Free for people affected by cancer

I joined this quite a few months ago, pre-COVID. They have a nice facility near Toronto's downtown Chinatown. Every program they offer is completely free of charge. They do a sit-down interview with you beforehand to tell you about their offerings and learn more about your situation.

Mine was the Caregivers support group. Was originally supposed to meet in person but we switched to Zoom and did all our sessions that way . For us we did 8 weeks of meetings. Once/week . 1 1/2 hours /session. It was really beneficial to meet others in similar situations and learn about resources available to us. Also good to hear that many people face the same struggles and challenges.

All the staff have been wonderful and I can't praise them enough, highly recommended.
Things changed now that I’m a father, I can’t live my life a quarter mile at a time anymore.
