Gilda Radner’s dream was to create a free cancer support community for people with cancer, their families and friends. Today, that dream is fulfilled at Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit, a three-story non-residential house in Royal Oak. Since opening our signature red door in January 1998, Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit has welcomed more than 10,000 members for social and emotional support and a whole lot of FUN.

Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit provides a social and emotional support program for men, women, teens and children living with cancer, their families and friends in a nonresidential, home-like setting. There is no cost to participate in our program.


Our program includes:
  • Support groups for people living with cancer, family members and cancer-specific topics (such as Young Adults with Cancer, Women of Color, Multiple Myeloma, Breast Cancer, etc.)
  • Education lectures on a variety of cancer-related topics.
  • Workshops (such as yoga, beading, colored pencils, quilting, guided imagery, Gilda’s Singers, Stringers, ukulele group, etc.)
  • Children and teen specific activities and groups.
  • Bereavement support groups.
  • Social events (monthly Coffee House, special occasions, holiday parties etc.)
