Get Started

If cancer has entered your life, you’re already a member. So, let’s get started.

Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help, especially if you don’t know what you need. We get it. 

That’s why we make it easy to get started at Gilda’s Club, so you can find the customized support you need in our warm, welcoming environment. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Sign up for and attend a New Member Meeting

Step through our welcoming red doors, pass through our living room and kitchen, pause at our art wall … then learn about the five cornerstones of our program of support and receive free tour of our relaxing, uplifting and comfy clubhouse.

These orientation sessions and tours for anyone interested in joining Gilda’s Club occur weekly, and alternate between midday and evening sessions.
