Imagine A Place To Go…

…when your life is touched by cancer.

  • A nonresidential clubhouse where mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, partners, grandparents, children, families,  co-workers and friends gather to share wisdom  and find comfort and strength. 
  •  Away from the hospital, in a cozy, welcoming clubhouse with a door open to anyone touched  by cancer. 
  • Where everyone understands your thoughts, feelings and emotions.
  •  To learn how to live with cancer.

Gilda’s Club New Hampshire will be that place.

Behind our red doors, we will create a welcoming  community, a place to go for free support for  everyone living with cancer—men, women, teens,  and children—along with their families and friends. An essential complement to medical care, our innovative program will provide networking and support groups,  workshops, education and social activities.

Support and Networking Groups for those living with cancer, Family Groups for family members and friends, and monthly Networking Groups for a particular kind of cancer or topic of common interest, such as, prostate cancer, young adults with cancer, living solo with cancer, etc.

Please contact us to let us know if you are interested in donating or helping us with this project (or have questions).
