“The failure to address the very real psychosocial health needs of patients and their caregivers is a failure to effectively treat that patient’s cancer, plain and simple.”
- The Institute of Medicine Report
“Cancer Care for the Whole Patient”, 2007
Gilda’s Club South Florida addresses these psychosocial needs through our Comprehensive Program Components: Support Services, Noogieland™, Education, Healthy Lifestyle, Social Connections, and Resources & Referrals.
