This month, our spotlight shines on a very amazing group of individuals who daily make a difference in our community. In the true spirit of Gilda’s Club, when asked for a photo they wanted to show the diversity of their members. We spoke with Suzanne Goldring to learn a little more about Gilda’s Club Louisville.
“Celebrating 10 years, Gilda’s Club Louisville is an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, a network of clubhouses throughout the United States and the world. Together, we are the largest provider of free social and emotional support to those living with cancer – men, women, teens and children, along with their families and friends” Suzanne said.
The Club’s mission is to ensure that all people in our community, who are impacted by cancer, are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. Gilda’s Club Louisville supports more than 1,000 active members who participate in over 100 program activities each month. The program is an essential complement to medical care, providing support groups, workshops, education and social activities along with cooking and nutrition classes, yoga, art, music and so much more. Gilda’s Club Louisville is a place where members are the experts at living with cancer and join with others to give and receive the benefits of knowledge, love and laughter.
We asked Suzanne a few questions about their relationship with Unified…
What drew your company to make a connection with Unified Technologies?
Our telephone system was sorely out of date and we needed to upgrade. Through research and comparison, we chose Unified Technologies to help us service our members, volunteers, donors and guests.
If you could describe Unified in one word, what would that be?
How has using Unified benefited you and your company?
The ability to administer phone system through website has proven to be a very useful tool.
