Gilda's Club and the Britney Spears Foundation joined together to bring a "Super Day" to the children of families affected by cancer. The special day was held Saturday, September 16 at Gilda's Club Grand Rapids.
Every year in the United States three out of four families are changed by cancer. It's expected that 1.3 million people will be newly diagnosed in 2006 alone. Gilda's Club exists to give support to those families and the people who care about them. All services, workshops, lectures, programs and special events are free of charge.
"Super Day" is the next special event at Gilda's and it is designed to kick off the Gilda's Club youth program.
Many activities and entertainment included crafts, music, puppet shows and an indoor picnic were planned for those in attendance on that Saturday.
It was intended that "Super Day" will have assisted children in understanding what is happening in their families and offer them support. The day is designed to help children explore and express their thoughts and feelings, learn about cancer terms and treatments, and receive support from other children sharing the experience.
