Why Support Gilda’s Club?

For people learning to live with cancer, the feeling of emotional distress can be hard to bear. Maybe you have seen this with someone you care about.  Members of Gilda's Club Simcoe Muskoka what that feels like. Every member of Gilda's Club has felt the impact of cancer. They've also felt the power of the emotional and social support they find in the cancer support community at Gilda's Club. Here they find the information, companionship and emotional support they need to make it through their cancer journey, whatever the destination.

Have you recently been diagnosed with cancer? Are you undergoing treatment or perhaps you know someone – a family member or friend – with cancer? Have you lost someone to cancer?

A cancer diagnosis can bring with it fear, isolation, and anger, and an overwhelming need for information about treatment options, health insurance, financial support, and how to manage the daily routine of life. Cancer doesn’t just change the life of the individual diagnosed, but also the lives of those around them.

At Gilda’s Club Simcoe Muskoka, we offer professionally-led support and networking groups, healthy lifestyle groups, educational workshops and lectures, social activities, and resources to all those impacted by cancer.

The mission of Gilda’s Club Simcoe Muskoka is to ensure all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.

Our programs are offered free of charge to members.
