We offer groups including Living with Cancer; Family & Friends, Post-Treatment, Breast Cancer, Bereavement, and Kid Support. You can expect to explore new ways of dealing with the stresses of cancer and become an empowered advocate for yourself. To provide further support, Gilda’s Club offers short-term counseling.

Resources & Referral
Whether you are looking for specific cancer information, community resources or someone you can speak with about your questions and concerns, we can help lead you in the right direction.
Our classes are designed to help you become more engaged in mind-body stress reduction, exercise, nutrition, art, and living well with cancer. These classes involve active participation as you learn skills during your cancer experience.
One of the greatest benefits of our Program is the life-long friendships built through social connection. This component of our Program works to ensure that no one faces cancer alone and helps build a sense of community.
