Gildas Club Wish List

Annual Survey

On an annual basis, Gilda’s Club asks those who have used our services to complete a Member Satisfaction survey to help us evaluate the effectiveness of our programs. This year, we have finally gone high-tech and our survey in online!

We have also joined forces with our other California affiliates of Cancer Support Community and we are all using the same survey format, so please be sure to select "Gilda’s Club Desert Cities" when you get to the section that asks which facility you attend.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. Click Here to access our online survey.
