Gilda’s Club was inspired by the late comedian Gilda Radner, of Saturday Night Live fame. Gilda regained her gift of laughter and feeling of control when she joined with others living with cancer. Gilda’s Clubs are places where people with cancer and their families and friends learn to live well with cancer. They are their lifeline to strength, hope and guidance. The effects are often life-changing.
