At Gilda’s Club Twin Cities, no one faces cancer alone.
What’s Behind the Red Doors?
When you walk through the red doors of the clubhouse, you’ll find a welcoming, supportive and uplifting environment. It is a place of understanding…where knowledgeable staff and compassionate volunteers “get” what you are going through. This is a place where people impacted by cancer gather, connect and learn – together we use the power of shared experience and our collective wisdom to support one another. We welcome you to come as you are.
Membership Means Connection
Cancer gave me membership into an elite club I would rather not belong to.” – Gilda Radner
Gilda’s Club members are individuals – men, women, kids, teens, and young adults – whose lives are impacted by cancer of any type, at any stage, or phase of the experience. We know cancer doesn’t just affect the person with the diagnosis – so we provide support for the whole family, the whole time ™.
Gilda’s Club members are:
Individuals and families whose primary stressor in life is the emotional, social and psychological impact of cancer
In active treatment, transitioning into post-treatment, living with advanced cancer or facing end of life
Family, friends and caregivers supporting someone living with cancer
Individuals grieving the loss of a loved one due to cancer
There are no membership fees or dues. All of our program offerings are free – there is never a cost to our members. Membership simply means you belong.
