Gilda's Club NYC (GCNYC) was founded in 1995 in memory of Gilda Radner, the talented comedian and original cast member of Saturday Night Live who passed away in 1989 from ovarian cancer. Gilda Radner appeared on Broadway in Lunch Hour and Gilda Radner Live From New York.

“GCNYC's mission is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families. A cancer diagnosis can be an extremely isolating experience which triggers many emotions including fear, anger, depression and an overwhelming sense of helplessness. Men, women, teens, and children attend support groups, educational lectures and workshops, free of charge, at our West Village Clubhouse and at our offsite program with hospital and community partners around NYC.”
