Gilda's Club New York City creates welcoming communities of free support for everyone living with cancer men, women, teens and children along with their families and friends. Our innovative program is an essential complement to medical care, providing support and networking groups, workshops, educational lectures and social activities, all free of charge.
   
People with cancer: From the moment of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond, the effects of cancer aren’t only physical – there is a profound emotional and social impact as well. Joining a community of people who have experienced cancer firsthand can decrease the sense of isolation and empower you to confront your fears.
   
Their family and friends: The impact of cancer extends beyond the person who has been diagnosed. Learning to balance the need to provide care and support with everyday responsibilities is something no one should have to face alone.
   
People who are grieving: When a loved one dies, communicating feelings of grief and loss can be very difficult. Talking with others who have been through the grieving process is often beneficial.
   
Children and Teens: Noogieland is a place where children affected by cancer can express their feelings in a friendly, facilitated play environment. We also have a program for teens.
