Gilda's Club Metro Detroit Founders

In 1993 eight women, all facing cancer themselves or with a loved one started to explore something, anything in metro Detroit to ease the path. They came across an important effort in New York to honor Gilda Radner. In 1998 these eight courageous women opened the doors to our permanent home in metro Detroit.
