Gilda's Club Chicago Weekly Support Groups
Wellness Groups offer people with a cancer diagnosis who are in active treatment an opportunity to share thoughts, feelings, and information. Together group participants experience warmth, understanding, support and learn how to manage stress. Family/Friends Groups offer those supporting a person with cancer the opportunity to discuss common issues. Together individual family members, friends, and caregivers learn new ways to cope with their individual stress as well as ways to support their loved ones living with cancer. Bereavement Groups are available to any individual family member, friend or caregiver who has lost a loved one to cancer. These groups are offered to members 18 years or older. Participants must be assigned to a group after completing a Customized Membership Plan (CMP) in order to participate. Groups for children are also available.
