The support that we receive from our Participant Community Fund Campaign allows The Gathering Place (TGP) to improve the quality of life for individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer as well as their loved ones. As you know, TGP’s cancer support services address needs from the time of diagnosis through survivorship or grief.
Annually, over 2,400 individuals from throughout Northeast Ohio will turn to TGP for support and address their mind, body, and spirit as well as build community with others who are on the journey.
They know, as we do, cancer does not define them and there is more to cancer care than medicine.
By making a gift to the 2022-23 Participant Community Fund, you will ensure that TGP is able to continue to create a caring community that supports, educates, and empowers individuals and families currently coping with the impact of cancer.
Together, we can ensure that TGP’s programs and services remain available, free of charge, to individuals & families who are on a cancer journey, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or income level.
