Our Program

Gilda’s Club Quad Cities offers workshops, professionally-led support groups, healthy lifestyle activities and social events — all provided at no charge — for men, women, and children whose lives have been impacted by cancer. Our program is designed to help people with cancer and their friends and family deal with the physical, psychological and emotional challenges of cancer.
