A Global Network of Education and Hope
At Gilda’s Club KC, we believe that anyone impacted by cancer should be empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.
What is Gilda’s Club?
At Gilda’s Club we believe that no one should face cancer alone.
Who Is Gilda?
Gilda’s Club is named in memory of comedian Gilda Radner (best known for her work on NBC’s Saturday Night Live), who died from cancer in 1989. Her husband, actor Gene Wilder, and her cancer psychotherapist Joanna Bull founded Gilda’s Club in 1991 along with film critic Joel Siegel, actor/singer Mandy Patinkin and several of Gilda’s Friends. The first Gilda’s Club opened its signature red door in New York City in 1995.
What’s up in the Club?
Connect with our community, enjoy lunch, and have fun in the photo booth while the kids create artwork. Drop by anytime and invite friends and family to experience Gilda’s Club Kansas City. We look forward to seeing you at the Clubhouse! If weather permits, we will be outside. All are welcome! Lunch provided by the University of Kansas Cancer Center.
