Our Belief That Community Is Stronger Than Cancer. We are a relentless ally for anyone who is striving to manage the realities of this disruptive disease and get back to normal.

No one can, or should, face cancer alone. While we have witnessed many significant advances in treating this devastating disease, nothing takes the place of the power, inspiration, companionship, and connection that comes from community.

We are here to provide relevant and highly personalized support when and where it is needed most because Community is Stronger than Cancer.

We are a global non-profit network of 175 locations, including CSC and Gilda's Club centers, hospital and clinic partnerships, and satellite locations that deliver more than $50 million in free support and navigation services to patients and families. Find a location near you.

In addition, we administer a toll-free helpline, 888-793-9355, and produce award-winning educational and digital resources that, together with the locations, reach more than one million people each year.

We also conduct cutting-edge research on the emotional, psychological, and financial journey of cancer patients and advocate at all levels of government for policies to help individuals whose lives have been disrupted by cancer.
