Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto is a place where men, women, teens and children with cancer – along with family and friends – can join with others to build social and emotional support as a supplement to medical care. Gilda’s Club also welcomes long-term cancer survivors and those who have lost someone to cancer. Free of charge, Gilda’s Club offers support and networking groups, lectures, workshops and social activities in a non-residential, home-like setting. The Gilda’s Club philosophy is based on the belief that a diagnosis of cancer affects the whole family, as well as friends, and that no one should have to face cancer alone.
