Gilda's Club Evansville, an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community, is dedicated to providing support, education and hope to all people impacted by cancer, family members and friends of those diagnosed, children, and people who have lost someone to cancer.


Gilda's Club Evansville provides a gathering place where people with cancer, as well as their families and friends, or people that have lost someone to cancer, can join with others to actively involve themselves in building social and emotional support as a supplement to regular medical care. Our evidence-based programming includes support groups, healthy lifestyle workshops, mind-body classes, social activities, educational lectures and community resource information.

We build community, so we can take on cancer together.

The mission of Gilda's Club Evansville is to serve as a community of caring individuals that provide social, emotional, and educational support to all people impacted by cancer.


Ann Moore

Gilda's Club Evansville was inspired by the vision of Ann Moore who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and dreamed of a local community of support for herself, family and friends. It is due to the dedication of Ann, her husband Randy, and their ever-expanding circle of friends that Gilda's Club Evansville officially opened our Red Door on February 6, 2014; making Ann's dream a reality.

In 4 short years, over 12,000 people have walked through our red door...finding hope, strength, and support for themselves and those they love by participating in support groups, educational workshops, healthy lifestyle activities and social connections.
