Supporting Gilda's Club Chicago
The mission of Gilda’s Club Chicago is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community. They support everyone living with cancer – men, women, teens and children – along with their families and friends, as well as those who have lost someone to cancer. Their innovative program, including more than 350 free activities each month, is an essential complement to medical care and offers support groups, educational lectures, healthy lifestyle programs, resource referrals, and social opportunities.
Gilda's Club Chicago is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is funded through donations from individuals, businesses, foundations and special events. They are an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, which is a worldwide network of more than 50 Clubs and 100 satellite locations, as well as a provider of online resources.
