Our Mission: To ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
Gilda’s Club Desert Cities is an affiliate of The Cancer Support Community, an international non-profit dedicated to providing support, education and hope to people affected by cancer. As an affiliate of the largest employer of psychosocial oncology mental health professionals in the United States, we offer a network of personalized services and education for all people affected by cancer. This global network brings the highest quality cancer support to the millions of people touched by cancer. To ensure no one has to face cancer alone, our support services are available through a network of professionally led community-based centers, as well as online.
In July 2009, Gilda’s Club Worldwide and The Wellness Community joined forces to become the Cancer Support Community. By helping to complete the cancer care plan Gilda’s Club Desert Cities continues to optimize patient care by providing essential, but often overlooked, services including support groups, education and healthy lifestyle programs. Today, Gilda’s Club Desert Cities provides the highest quality emotional and social support for the Coachella Valley of Eastern Riverside County with program locations in Palm Desert, Sun City and Indio.
