Tuesday, November 29, 2022 marks Giving Tuesday… a day dedicated to giving to charities that make a tremendous difference in our communities. The Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre (GBCSC) is one of those charities that needs your help to help others who need support more than ever.
A gift to the GBCSC ensures the programs and services we offer those affected by cancer are available in our community. We do not receive government funding so individual donations are essential to offer services including one-on-one counselling, wellness, and exercise programs. treatment-related costs, as well as maintaining our Centre facility.
When you give to the GBCSC, it makes a huge difference to our members, their families, and caregivers:
- $100 a month/$1,200 annually can pay for the cost of accommodations during daily out of town radiation treatment.
- $50 a month/$600 annually covers the annual cost of a bi-weekly peer support group.
- $25 a month/$300 annually can purchase a basic wig for somebody dealing with the very visible side effects of chemotherapy.
- $10 a month/$120 annually allows a member to receive counselling from a registered professional.
Your support of the Centre ensures we can provide free support programs and services to people close to home in North Simcoe and Southern Georgian Bay.
Each one-time gift we receive plays an important part in offering local cancer support for people dealing with cancer, their families, and caregivers.
Your recurring weekly or monthly gift helps us to provide consistent, ongoing, and predictable support to those who need it
Thank you for supporting the Georgian Bay Cancer Support Centre and our members on Giving Tuesday.
