“Gene and Gilda left a legacy of humor and lightheartedness,” said Gilda’s Club Quad Cities Program Director Melissa Wright. “Cancer can obviously be sad and emotional, but when you come to Gilda’s Club it’s about comradery and friendship and being with people who care. I think that will always continue,” said Wright.

Anyone impacted by cancer is welcome to attend. For more details and to register, please call Gilda’s Club at 563-326-7504 or email melissa@gildasclubqc.org.
