Gilda’s Club

Best known for her everlasting "Saturday Night Live" characters, Gilda Radner filled the world with love and laughter. In 1989, her legacy was established when her husband and friends founded Gilda's Club. Gilda was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1985, and she described having cancer as giving her a membership into an elite club she'd rather not belong to.

Today, Gilda's Club is a place where men, women, and children whose lives have been impacted by cancer, as well as their families and friends, can feel a part of a welcoming community of support.

Every donation demonstrates the mission to Take On Cancer Together—this is a shared commitment to ensure that no one faces cancer alone. Support Gilda's Club by choosing the giving option that works best for you!
