This informal meeting is the first step for all cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers who are interested in joining one of our support groups. It provides an opportunity for individuals with cancer, family members, and caregivers to learn more about Cancer Support Community at Gilda’s Club and the programs and services we offer. These bi-monthly meetings offer newcomers a chance to explore various methods used to support recovery, maintain hope, and improve the quality of their lives. The orientation also offers participants the opportunity to share stories with other cancer patients, their families and cancer survivors – or just listen.
If you are unable to attend an in person orientation due to medical or other reasons, virtual orientations may be arranged.
