Wide receiver Golden Tate recently spent time with the families of Gilda’s Club Seattle – a community-based program of social, emotional and educational support for cancer survivors.
Like many of us – myself included – Tate has been affected by cancer in his lifetime, and it is clear his visit to the club was very personal.
“I’ll do whatever I can to help change lives and help people be more positive about the situation or the circumstances that they’re dealing with,” Tate told Q13 FOX’s Brien Blakely.
For the families of Gilda’s Club, Tate’s presence offered one of comfort and hope, while helping to ease their struggle with the disease.
“We know we’re not in it alone,” Tim Corey, whose wife has been battling cancer for years, told Q13 FOX. “We know there’s a larger community there with us.”
