The Gilda’s Club program includes support and networking groups, educational lectures and workshops, and social activities for men, women, teens and children touched by cancer.
Support and Networking Groups:
All of our support and networking groups are facilitated by licensed, mental health professionals.
We offer weekly support groups for individuals touched by cancer:
- Wellness Group
- Family & Friends Group
- Living with Loss Group
We offer monthly Networking Groups that are cancer or topic specific:
Workshops and Educational Lectures:
Workshop and lecture topics are based on member interest and often include:
The information & opinions provided by lecture & workshop volunteers are general in nature & should not be used in place of appropriate one-on-one medical consultation.
Social activities vary from monthly potluck suppers, comedy night, open mic night and holiday celebrations.
Noogieland is the part of our program dedicated to children touched by cancer, age 4-12. Click here to learn more!
Gilda’s Teen Club:
Gilda’s Teen Clubs are for teens whose lives have been touched by cancer in any way. We currently have clubs in 8 of our local schools, as well as at the clubhouse. Click here to learn more!
The Buddy-Buddy network is comprised of volunteers who are current members of Gilda’s Club. They have lived a cancer experience & are interested in reaching out to others who are newly diagnosed to lend their support by phone, email or meeting at the clubhouse.
Team Convene is facilitated by a licensed, mental health professional, and used to create an active support network at the time of diagnosis, recurrence or any challenging time or situation that may follow (hospital stay or home recuperation). The session can include all significant family members and friends in a member’s life, who join together to provide support in areas such as transportation, food preparation, childcare, etc.
Family Focus is facilitated by a licensed, mental health professional. The session can include anyone a member defines as family. The purpose is to enlist the entire family as a resource and help them learn together how to live with cancer, whatever the outcome. It seeks to identify and discuss family beliefs about cancer, critical family issues and immediate practical problems as well as solutions.
