Lend a Hand

October 4, 2011

I spent the day sitting behind a desk answering phones.

I was putting in my hours for my Junior League placement at Gilda’s Club, which recently merged with The Wellness Community to become Cancer Support Commuity. It’s a national nonprofit organization that offers fantastic resources for people going through cancer treatment — both patients and families, and most especially kids.

I’ve gone from cancer patient to cancer survivor to just a regular volunteer.

It’s fantastic that all I had to do with the Junior League was shoot off an email to get back with the program — and the volunteer orientation over at Gilda’s Clu… I mean Cancer Support Community was super-easy and nice. I know that’s the way these things ought to happen, but I’ve done enough volunteer work to know what a rare treat it is when they do.

It was a good day for me. One of those benchmark days.

  1. You are the best thing I have heard about the Junior League. Prior to your experiences, most of what I had heard was not gracious and positive but rather snooty and upper crusty. Thank you for expanding my knowledge.

    • Laura, I promise that if you joined you would have a very different experience. It’s a case of seeing what you’re looking for.
