WHY: A cancer diagnosis is one of the toughest challenges life can bring. We want to recognize those in our community who have been impacted by cancer, by shining lights in their honor. The campaign also generates financial support that enables Gilda’s Club to provide support groups, mentorships, educational classes and activities designed to improve the health and quality of life for those dealing with cancer.
Gilda’s Club Evansville is a free cancer support community for anyone living with cancer and their families and friends. Gilda’s Club recognizes that social and emotional support are as essential as medical care when cancer is in the family. The program is overseen by licensed mental health professionals and includes a variety of workshops, classes, groups and activities in both a home-like setting and on-the-go.
