The Program

Like all Gilda’s Clubs, the Gilda’s Club Kansas City program includes the following components:

Support and Networking Groups

Support and networking groups include Weekly Wellness Groups for those living with cancer, Family Groups for family members and friends, and monthly Networking Groups that focus on a particular kind of cancer or topic of common interest. 

Lectures and Workshops

These activities provide opportunities for acquiring new skills, tools, information and techniques to learn how to live with cancer. Typical lecture topics include stress reduction, nutrition, talking to your children about cancer, and managing pain. Major workshop areas include art, meditation, exercise and yoga, and cooking.

Social Activities

Among the most popular offerings at Gilda's Clubs, social activities vary from potluck suppers with music and karaoke nights, to joke fests and comedy nights, to major celebrations around special holidays. Members and families who gather for fun create bonds that enhance other individual and group experiences.


Noogieland is the part of the Gilda's Club program designated for children and families living with cancer. Each clubhouse has a special area where children meet. Most Gilda's Clubs also have several kinds of activities for teens.
