LIBERTY, Mo., June 11, 2024 –  Gilda’s Club KC returns to hosting in-person support groups at the TreeHouse last month.  Gilda’s Club is running concurrent meetings, Living with Cancer and Friends & Family support groups from 6-7:30PM on the 2nd Thursday of each month.  These meetings directly offer support to patients and families receiving care at Liberty Hospital.  Participants can register for these groups online, or by contacting / 816-531-5444.

One of the groups, Living with Cancer, is a support group for those who are currently in active treatment for a cancer diagnosis and are seeking support from others who are also in treatment.  The Friends & Family Support Group are for caregivers and those supporting someone they care about with a cancer diagnosis to come together with others who understand this role.

About Gilda’s Club

Our program is for anyone with any cancer, their families, children/teens, and friends, from diagnosis and beyond, as well as medical professionals. At Gilda’s Club, “members” participate in educational workshops, healthy lifestyle programs, and social activities, as well as professionally led support and networking groups – all at no cost to them. Individuals choose as many, or as few, activities they would like to attend. Programs are designed as a complement, not an alternative, to conventional medical care.

Gilda’s Club is named in memory of comedian Gilda Radner (best known for her work on NBC’s Saturday Night Live), who died from cancer in 1989. Her husband, actor Gene Wilder, and her cancer psychotherapist Joanna Bull founded Gilda’s Club in 1991 along with film critic Joel Siegel, actor/singer Mandy Patinkin and several of Gilda’s friends. The first Gilda’s Club opened its signature red door in New York City in 1995.
