Local residents living with cancer and their families can find strength and support at the Gilda's Club at Doylestown Hospital, offering convenient services and special programs for anyone touched by cancer.
Gilda's Club is a network of affiliate clubhouses where men, women and children living with cancer, as well as their friends and families, meet to learn how to live with cancer, whatever the outcome. Gilda's Club is named in memory of comedian Gilda Radner, who died from ovarian cancer in 1989.
The Doylestown Hospital location features a kitchen area, art studio, resource library and space for yoga, meditation and pilates classes. It is located on the main floor of Doylestown Hospital and is easily accessible from the Main Lobby. In addition to speakers and educational workshops, the focus is on healing and creative arts and the mind/body connection.
All of Gilda's Club workshops and programs are free and available to men, women and children.
Gilda's Club is just one outlet of the support services offered by the Cancer Institute of Doylestown Hospital, which also offers a number of American Cancer Society programs and support groups.
Gilda's Club at Doylestown Hospital is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will be open for other events and meetings as scheduled. For more information, call 215-345-2022.
