Gilda's Club Kansas City has created a free community of support for men, women, and children diagnosed with cancer, as well as their families and close friends.

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’s Club For?

Our program is for anyone with any cancer, their families, children/teens, and friends, from diagnosis and beyond, as well as medical professionals. At Gilda’s Club, “members” participate in educational workshops, healthy lifestyle programs, and social activities, as well as professionally led support and networking groups – all at no cost to them. Individuals choose as many, or as few, activities they would like to attend. Programs are designed as a complement, not an alternative, to conventional medical care.

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.
