Gilda's Club New York City creates welcoming communities of free support for everyone living with cancer - men, women, teens and children - along with their family and friends. Our innovative program is an essential complement to medical care, providing networking and support groups, workshops, lectures and social activities, all FREE OF CHARGE.
Gilda's Club New York City was named for Gilda Radner, the brilliant comedian and one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live. For years, she made us laugh with memorable characters like Baba Wawa, Emily Litella and Roseanne Roseannadanna. Gilda was diagnosed with overian cancer in 1986. She learned to live with cancer with help from a support community she joined in California, where she felt she could express what she was really feeling - an experience she described in her autobiography, It's Always Something. It was her dream that anyone touched by cancer would be able to receive the kind of emotional and social support that she had found. Following her death in 1989, Gilda's husband, Gene Wilder and her cancer psychotherapist, Joanna Bull started the Gilda's Club movement. In June, 1995 GCNYC opened it's signature red door - Gilda's legacy to everyone living with cancer.
