Does any one go to The Gilda Clubs? There is one in Allegan Mi meets twicew a month they don't care what kind of cancer you have it is a meeting place. Even if you are just a support because you have been in these shoes.

They have Gilda Club at 524 Marshall St (M-89 think) Allegan Michigan we went tonight they are for caregivers, cancer of any kind.Gilda Radner who it was named after died of Ovarian Cancer . The Allegan one does not have many people but my husband and I had a very good time. We had supper (did not have to or was ask to pray) . We sat and chatted laughted and they let us cry. I thought they did a great job, The start at 5 pm second and forth Monday so next one will be Sept 27 at 5 p.m. I know all the support groups we had looked into are all Breast cancer. This was the first one that did take all cancer and caregivers and supporters . I can say I had a nice time. I ask my husband what he thought he said lets go again. So I think he enjoyed it.

They are for any kind of Cancer, not just Breast Cancer. I think people who go there are more offen women but it is open for any one who has, had our lost a love one to Cancer.
I think they did a very good job . For a littlw while we got out got to chat and even for a few minutes forget why we went. I would tell anyone to give it a try.
