Providing Cancer Support
Gilda’s Club Middle Tennessee, an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, is dedicated to providing support, education and hope to all people impacted by cancer, including family members and friends of those diagnosed.
Free of charge to everyone, Gilda’s Club Middle Tennessee provides a gathering place where people with cancer, as well as their families and friends, can join with others to actively involve themselves in building social and emotional support as a supplement to regular medical care. Our evidence-based, donor-supported program includes support groups, healthy lifestyle workshops, mind-body classes, social activities, educational lectures and community resource information. Offering approximately 60 professionally-led support and networking groups, and more than 50 educational workshops and lectures each month, Gilda’s Club Middle Tennessee is able to make a tangible difference in the lives of those impacted by cancer. We build community, so no one has to face cancer alone.
Did You Know?
Three in four Americans will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. Equally startling is the fact that Tennessee is ranked 18th highest in incidence rate and 6th highest in mortality rate from cancer in the United States - and many more are affected than those diagnosed. As the only cancer support agency in Middle Tennessee also benefiting friends and families, Gilda's Club Middle Tennessee's mission is to ensure those impacted by cancer (all genders, ages, races, backgrounds, and cancer types) are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
