Become A Member

At Gilda’s Club Quad Cities, anyone who participates in our program is considered a “member.” Becoming a member of Gilda’s Club is becoming part of a community – a meaningful cancer support community.

Membership at Gilda’s Club Quad Cities is always free of charge. We offer support groups and other activities primarily in our main clubhouse in Davenport, but also throughout Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois.

Joining our cancer support community is easy!

  1. The first step is to give us a call at 563-326-7504 or email us gc@gildasclubqc.org.
  2. Attend a one-time meeting to learn more about what Gilda’s Club offers, tour the clubhouse and sign up for membership. Group New Member Orientations are held each month on the first Thursday from 6:30 – 7:30 pm, second Friday from 12 – 1 pm, third Monday from 5:30 – 6:30 pm, fourth Friday from 12 – 1 pm or by appointment.
  3. Each family member will be asked to complete our Annual Visitor Form to register as a member.
  4. Whether you are person with a cancer diagnosis or a family member we will ask you to complete the CancerSupportSource (CSS) distress screening, which will help guide us in determining what concerns you might have and how we can be most helpful to you during this time.  We will discuss how you want to be involved at Gilda’s Club and other resources that might be helpful -enabling you and your family to structure your social and emotional support.

Once you are a member, you will receive our regular monthly calendar and can participate freely in the Gilda’s Club community of support — whether in groups, educational workshops and classes, social events or a combination of everything!
