Gilda’s Club Westchester, in partnership with Pink Aid, has launched a Breast Cancer Support Services Program available to patients and survivors in lower Fairfield County.
Free counseling sessions, conducted over the phone with a bilingual (English/Spanish) mental health professional, can help reduce the caller’s level of stress, provide information, and increase their ability to cope. Top concerns often include: financial/cost of cancer treatments, treatment options/decision making, and discussions with family members about their illness.
The phone number is 203-661-0476.
Founded in 2001, Gilda’s Club Westchester offers compassionate support to those affected by cancer through individual and family counseling, support groups, lectures/workshops, and fellowship through social interaction.
Pink Aid’s mission is to help underserved local women survive breast cancer treatment with support and dignity, to provide screening to women in financial need, and to empower breast cancer survivors to heal by helping and inspiring others.
