Gilda’s Club NYC reaches more than 10,000 people annually through direct services at our Clubhouse and offsite hospital partners, and outreach through our website, health fairs, schools, corporate presentations, and inquiry calls. Men, women, teens, and children attend free support groups, educational lectures and healthy lifestyle workshops at the West Village clubhouse, or at select medical centers throughout New York City.
Our supportive and educational program is an integral supplement to conventional medical treatment, and helps restore a sense of control, redefine hope, reduce stress and isolation, and educate participants to better manage their care during and after treatment.
Cancer doesn’t just affect the cancer patient. It also impacts the entire family which is why we provide support to caregivers, family members and friends, and those who have lost someone to cancer, as well as those with a cancer diagnosis.
