History

Our Clubhouse, formerly known as Gilda’s Club Western Pennsylvania, was originally named for beloved Saturday Night Live comedian, Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989. In 2009, all Gilda’s Clubs and The Wellness Communities formed a new parent organization, Cancer Support Community. 

In 2014, Gilda’s Club Western Pennsylvania became an independent non-profit in order to remain focused on our mission to offer social, emotional and wellness support to those in our region touched by cancer. Our doors remain open to the men, women, teens and children – as well as their families and friends – who have been diagnosed with cancer. 

Since our opening in June 2006, Our Clubhouse has welcomed more than 2,000 members.
