About Gilda's Club Kansas City
Gilda’s Club was inspired by the late comedian Gilda Radner, of Saturday Night Live fame. Gilda regained her gift of laughter and feeling of control when she joined with others living with cancer. Gilda’s Clubs are places where people with cancer and their families and friends learn to live well with cancer. They are their lifeline to strength, hope and guidance. The effects are often life-changing.
Gilda’s Club Kansas City is one of over 50 global affiliates of the Cancer Support Community, an organization created when Gilda's Club Worldwide joined forces with the Wellness Community. Backed by evidence that the best cancer care includes social and emotional support, the Cancer Support Community offers these services free of charge to men, women and children with any type or stage of cancer and to their loved ones. As the largest, professionally led nonprofit network of cancer support worldwide, the Cancer Support Community delivers a comprehensive menu of personalized and essential services including support groups, educational workshops, exercise, art and nutrition classes and social activities for the entire family. In 2011, CSC delivered more than $40 million in free services to patients and families. The Cancer Support Community is advancing the innovations that are becoming the standard in complete cancer care. So that no one faces cancer alone®
