Gilda’s Club Worldwide and The Wellness Community joined forces in Nov. 2009 under the affiliation name of the Cancer Support Community.
It was Gilda Radner’s visits to a Wellness Community during her bout with cancer that inspired Gilda’s Clubs as we know them today. Together, The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club offers about 50 locations throughout the US and Canada for people to come together to find the emotional and social support during their cancer journey.
Gilda's Club is NOT just for women; it is open to anybody affected by cancer. Patients and their family and friends can come to Gilda's Club for whatever needs they may have — emotional or social support, a place to hang out, learn from others, speak with a professional, have a laugh, or even just to take a nap.
We keep the door open because that is what we're good for.
All are welcome!
