Black Women of Ethnicities Support Group

Support Groups

1st Thursday of the month | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM | Virtual

If you or someone you care about has been diagnosed with cancer, we invite you to participate in our monthly virtual support group. This group provides a safe space to meet with women who collaborate and empower one another while discussing challenges such as facing gender discrimination, bias within environments, compounding obstacles of racism, and building relationships, all through the impact of cancer diagnosis. All the services, including support groups, offered at Gilda’s Club Chicago are provided without any cost.
