What is Gilda’s Club?
Gilda's Club is a place where men, women and children whose lives have been impacted by cancer, as well as their families and friends, can feel they are part of a welcoming community of support. Join us and Take on Cancer Together.
I teach yoga and learn from my students each and every day. I’m always moved by their courage, strength and incredible ability to adapt.
The experience of having cancer and going through cancer treatment can feel really isolating, and so I think for people to be involved in activities where they are around other people who may be facing the same challenges can REALLY do a lot for people. A lot of times people will say I can’t afford to pay for classes or pay for a gym membership, Gilda’s helps them overcome that because all the services there are free.

I was so excited when I saw my paintings that I made at Noogie Days hanging on the wall in the kitchen.
There’s always something going on at Gilda’s. Every month, we offer a wide variety of free support groups, special programs, and good reasons to just hang out together. Many are held at Gilda’s Club’s main Clubhouse on Wells Street, but we also offer programs at all our hospital locations.
Gilda's Club Chicago relies on the generosity of the community to support all those who walk through our Red Doors. There are many ways to give and so many people to help.
