Welcome to Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids – come on in!
Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids is a vibrant free emotional health support community of children, adults, families and friends on any kind of cancer journey or those grieving a death due to any cause.
Our comprehensive program meets you where you are, when you need us, with a variety of social and emotional support options for you to choose from. Whether it be education opportunities with local experts and others who have traveled similar paths, support groups with structured sharing times, social activities or our weekly Facebook lives with varying subjects from nutrition and advance care planning to children’s books and conversation starting activities.
People gather together to learn, share their experiences, and true to our namesake Gilda Radner, have a few laughs along the way. Our support groups are facilitated by master’s level professionals with specialized programming and age appropriate opportunities for youth.
