What is Gilda’s Club? We are a community of South Jersey people whose lives have been touched by cancer. We are men, women and children at any stage of the cancer experience. We are their friends and family. We are volunteers, donors and skilled staff.
Yes, we are really a club! We don’t provide medical or social services. What we offer is just as important — emotional and social support, information and inspiration, fellowship and fun, hope and heart. And the lectures, groups, workshops and social events at our Linwood, NJ clubhouse are all free of charge!
A club for people with cancer? A funny idea maybe, but one that’s based on powerful ancient wisdom: connecting with people who understand what we’re going through is not just beneficial, it’s crucial; and when we give of ourselves, we always receive.
Thousands of Gilda’s Club members since the worldwide organization was founded in 1995 have discovered that just by participating in club activities we can: share our experiences, sort out medical information, solve practical problems, make friends, let our hair down (if we have any), and hey, even get a little comic relief!
At Gilda’s Club South Jersey, our members are “the experts.” Because you are the only one who knows how you feel and what you need right now. We invite you to explore what we have to offer and choose ways to participate that suit you best. You don’t need a referral. No, you don’t have to be upbeat. Come as you are. Just come.
Whether you or someone you love has cancer, or if you have lost someone to cancer, call us at (609) 926-2699 to sign up for the next new member meeting and clubhouse tour. Or just stop by and knock on the red door! We’ll be happy to show you around.
