It was over two years ago that Gilda’s Club Worldwide teamed up with the Wellness Community to form what is known today as the Cancer Support Community (CSC).  The mission of Gilda’s Club Quad Cities, as an affiliate of CSC, is “to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.”

In a recent poll of 46 experts by Philanthropedia, CSC was named the #6 Most Impactful Non-Profit in Cancer Care in the United States.  The experts praised CSC for the work we do in providing social and emotional support for individuals and families affected by a cancer diagnosis. According to one expert,

“There is no other organization I trust more in regards to the psychosocial impact of cancer. Their programs are very professional and compassionate.”

We are especially proud of this accomplishment because CSC selected Gilda’s Club Quad Cities children’s programming as their nationwide model for all affiliates!
