    What is Gilda's club? to cassieme1

    It is an organization for all touched by cancer, from the victim/survivor to all their family. Gilda's Club has groups, activities, and more to help you and celebrate the life you still have. That's not their official line; please look them up online.

      Some Gilda's Clubs switched names a while back and are now called Cancer Support Community. I work with them on a day-to-day basis as they offer wonderful programs both at their own location and remotely at St. Francis. They offer everything from cooking classes to yoga to support groups to kids activities to educational workshops and even some one-on-one therapy sessions. They are a wonderful organization - I really recommend either finding a Gilda's Club or Cancer Support Community near you if you are looking for some type of support.

      Wasn't this club founded because of Gilda Raddner? She died of ovarian cancer and that was the first time I had ever heard of that type of cancer. It is amazing how far we have come today in making people aware of the different types of cancer that are out there so people have more knowledge as to what to look out for to protect their health. Thanks for sharing the info on this club. I know we don't have one in our small town and the nearest big town that might have a club is Seattle and it's over an hour away from me. In the meantime, I use this site for my support and information. Thank you all who participate and share on this site. You have been more help than you know.
