Giggle with Gilda is an annual fundraiser held by Gilda’s Club of Kansas City. Their mission is “To ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.”
This organization offers emotional support and education to anyone whose lives have been affected by cancer. The sad reality is there aren’t many lives that haven’t been touched in some way. I just wish I would have known about this organization when my dad was dealing with throat cancer. He could have gotten the emotional support he needed and my family could have gotten support as caregivers.
I went to the 3rd annual fundraiser, which happened to be a comedy show and live auction. The comedians, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles, are from the show “Whose Line Is It Anyway”. The entire show was impromptu with audience participation. I laughed so hard I cried. It was a hilarious show.
At the end, I got to hear stories of people whose lives have been touched by the Gilda’s Club. If you aren’t familiar with it and you are dealing with cancer in your life and could use a little support, don’t be afraid to reach out to the Gilda’s Club.
