Over 35,000 individuals are diagnosed with cancer every year in the state of Washington. At Gilda’s Club Seattle we’re dedicated to providing a healing community for the men, women, teens & children living with cancer along with their family and friends. The emotional burden of cancer is overwhelming & that’s why at Gilda’s Club We Face Cancer Together!
Please join our incredible sponsors Swedish Hospital, Seattle Chocolates, Sound Community Bank and the Spady Family to help Gilda’s Club Seattle raise $250,000 to expand our cancer support services across the state free of charge!
Join us in our pledge as We Face Cancer Together this year! With your help we can reach more families & survivors in need of emotional support & healing this year.
- Every $2,500 we raise will help us continue to provide a healing community to 6,000 survivors & their families free of charge every month.
- Every $10,000 will allow us to visit a local Washington state High School for a full day of cancer education for teens specifically addressing; skin cancer, lung cancer, and HPV. [email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to bring Gilda’s Club to your local HS]

Gilda’s Club provides a healing community for more than 20,000 survivors & their families in Washington to ensure “No One Faces Cancer Alone”. Programs are offered in Seattle and throughout the State with collaborating partners in varied locations such as hospitals, community centers and schools.

Gilda's Club is named in honor of Gilda Radner, who, when describing the emotional and social support she received when she had cancer, called for such places of participation, education, hope and friendship to be made available for people with cancer and their families and friends everywhere. Gilda's Club Seattle officially opened its red doors on March 7th 2002. We welcome all those touched by cancer to come and join us.
