ABOUT GILDA’S CLUB METRO DETROIT

Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit is an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community. Gilda’s Club offers support for those touched by cancer — those diagnosed, as well as family, friends and caregivers. The program is locally funded through the generosity of events like Bras for a Cause and giving individuals, companies and friends. The program is free to anyone who walks through the signature red door. Inspired by the late comedian and Detroit native, Gilda Radner, who said cancer gave her a membership to a club no one wanted to belong to. Her vision of support, education and empowerment for all cancers for men, women and children, led to the inception of a worldwide network. Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit began in 1993 and has welcomed more than 10,000 people touched by cancer. The signature Clubhouse and red door in Royal Oak opened in 1998. Gilda had one true mission: So no one faces cancer alone.
