    Dear Friends of Gilda’s Club,

    I apologize if you already received this via our mass messaging that went out this morning, but I wanted to be sure that community partners are aware that Gilda’s Club is open for business—in the virtual space, of course!
    While we miss seeing members up close and personal, we are happy that everyone is staying safe in their homes. We are proud to announce that we have modified many of our existing programs to an online format to keep our Community connected. Support groups, Educational Programs and Healthy Lifestyle Activities are already up and running via our HIPAA-compliant Zoom platform.

    What does that mean? That means members can continue to meet with their fellow group members, GCQC facilitators, join classes and educational seminars — in a confidential, protected and secure online space that meets Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) standards.

    For the latest updates on our modified schedule, please visit www.gildasclubqc.org/modified.
    Our Community is Stronger than Cancer, and now, stronger than the restrictions we are each experiencing due to the Covid-19/Coronavirus. We welcome those impacted by cancer to this new format until we meet again face-to-face.
