Welcome to Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit. Chances are that you came to us because your life has been impacted by one of the many types of cancer. Whether it be your own diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one – a child, a spouse, a parent, a grandparent, a friend, a neighbor, a co-worker – we want you to know that we are here to provide tools and resources to help you on this journey, wherever the path may lead.
We do not treat disease. We do, however, offer a program of emotional and social support that recent studies report are an essential benefit to overall well-being for people faced with cancer. Our mission is to provide meeting places where men, women and children living with cancer, along with their families and friends, can join with others to build a personal network of social and emotional support as an integral part of cancer treatment. Free of charge and non-profit, Gilda's Club offers support and networking groups, seminars, workshops, specialized children's programs and social events in a nonresidential and home-like setting. Funding is solicited from private individuals, corporations and foundations.
