Pink Arrow Pride announces the funds distributed from the 2022 annual

event. The community support and sponsorships continue to show love for

Pink Arrow and the mission served throughout the years.


Community Wellness continues, after 15 years serving families on a

current cancer journey, with financial gifts from Pink Arrow Pride. The

purpose of Pink Arrow Family Support is to provide a financial gift as a

way to show support to those currently experiencing cancer. This gift

is not based on financial need; it is simply a sign of support from the

Lowell area community.


Because of Pink Arrow, Gilda’s Club, of Lowell, continues to guide and

provide support and uplifting counsel to all who walk through the door

for cancer support and grief counseling from any loss.

Mental health professionals and programming support staff are on hand

Tuesdays, in Lowell. Together we learn to navigate a new normal by

gathering and connecting with each other through experience, knowledge,

and education.


This past year Gilda’s Club was able to return to in-person support,

available directly at the Lowell Clubhouse. Virtual support groups will

still be offered. Gilda’s Club’s motto of, “In This Together... Learn,

Share, Laugh,” continue to expand this year as Supper Together and

Member Social Events returned to build on community support for all who

are impacted by cancer and/or grief due to any cause of death. Through

the support of the community and Lowell Boosters, the Supper Together

program provides a nurturing time for the members to share a meal

together, prior to support groups on Tuesday evenings at the Lowell

Clubhouse.


Additionally, Gilda’s Club Lowell has provided in-person support

utilizing our master level professionals outside of the clubhouse. The

Gilda’s Club youth staff have delivered the Tough Stuff Program to fifth

grade students, and grief support with middle schoolers, throughout the

Lowell School District. Developing healthy skills to face life’s

inevitable challenges at this early age will be an asset to our youth

when facing the unexpected cancer diagnosis of a family member or

friend, or walking through grief – be that, the death of a loved one or

loss of another kind.
