Luke & Lisa
Welcome to the fundraising team for Luke & Lisa. I signed up to walk this year because Gilda’s Club brings healing and comfort to men, women, and children facing cancer diagnosis or the loss of family members to this terrible disease.
Many of you do not know that my sister was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. I’m walking for her as she navigates a difficult journey and to honor my late son, Luke, who had leukemia.
Cancer is costly in every sense. Gilda’s Club provides resources, a full roster of programs, and removes any barriers to care by ensuring the program is no cost to anyone who walks through their doors. Gilda Radner famously said, “Everyone needs a place.” Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit is that place.
I joined in 2015, participating in movie nights, yoga, meditation, and musical therapy. I benefit from various support groups while Simon and Mara attend art expression in Noogieland. I’ve never been charged a fee and have been able to connect with other families struggling with the effects of cancer.
Gilda’s Club truly changes lives and so can you. I hope you will make a donation today in support of Lisa Gerisch and in honor of Luke Robert Demongey.
