Let Us Help Gülden Through Cancer Treatment

We have initiated this fundraising campaign to support Gülden and her family. On Christmas Eve, Gulden got the sad news that her cancer had spread and is now considered stage 4 and incurable. 

Gülden is a passionate seeker of justice for all, and she has been a cornerstone of every community to which she belongs. She has touched every soul she’s encountered in her professional and personal life. 

This Fund is an opportunity to show Gülden, Özgür and Ekim our solidarity and love. We appreciate each and every donation. The fund will be used for an RESP (Registered Education Savings Plan) account for Ekim and to support the family’s living expenses. 

As Gülden has said, “I believe in the potentials of connection and solidarity to turn impossible to possible in miraculous ways--In fact I consider my whole existence as an example of it.” 

On behalf of all of Gülden's friends
Irene, Caitlin, Kumru, Yasin
