Gilda’s Club, a nonprofit agency, is named in honor of comedian Gilda Radner – one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live – who died of ovarian cancer in 1989 at the age of 42.
We create welcoming communities of free support for everyone living with cancer – men, women, teens, and children, along with their caregivers, families, and friends.
Our innovative program is an essential complement to medical care, providing support groups, healthy lifestyle workshops, educational programs, and social activities. Our comprehensive program components are offered in a nonresidential, nonmedical, home-like setting and in the community to best serve our members.
The Clubhouse is located in a historic home on the Tarpon River in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
