How We Help

Gilda’s Club Rochester has been serving the Greater Rochester community since 1959, first as Cancer Action, Inc., and then in 2000 as Gilda’s Club. Today we receive over 17,800 visits yearly with over 1,200 FREE programs offered to men, women, teens and children who are affected by cancer. Our programs offer much-needed social and emotional support to those living with cancer along with their families and friends. Named for legendary Saturday Night Live comedienne, Gilda Radner, whose spirit lives on as members both give and receive love and laughter through our unique programs and events.

Become a member today to learn more about how to get and give support, because no one needs to go through cancer alone.

Gilda's Club offers services to men, women, teens and children, regardless of how cancer has touched their lives.

Thank you to our 2019 Camp Open Arms sponsors!

Camp Open Arms is designed specifically for children living with cancer themselves or in the immediate family. It is a one-week day camp focused on FUN and we couldn't do it without your support!
