CEO Message


Welcome to Gilda’s Club Westchester. We hope this site helps anyone affected by cancer to see the wide variety of psychosocial support we offer, whether they are living with cancer themselves, have a family member or friend with cancer, have experienced the loss of a loved one or are looking for support for children and teens. We are excited to share how we are working to strengthen our programs.
We continue to expand our programs, and grow our partnerships with hospitals, schools and other community-based organizations, to meet the needs of individuals and families at our house in White Plains and community-based sites. In addition to providing important information and camaraderie, our programs provide critical services for men, women, children, and teens who have emotional challenges and need formal support to address depression, reduce anxiety, and develop coping and communications skills. Gilda’s Club Westchester continues to fill gaps in services by expanding our programs to reach vulnerable populations, including older adults who have unique needs due to the aging process, those who are isolated and have barriers to care, and children and teens who need a safe comfortable environment to explore their feelings. We are excited to share that we recently received funding to build a Teen Cancer Center which will be a destination for teens from throughout our region.
Thank you for visiting our site. I hope you’ll browse through for more about the innovative programs we offer and all of the ways Gilda’s Club Westchester provides support to individuals and families in our community impacted by cancer.
Sincerely,
Melissa Lang, DrPH, MPH, MPA, MA Chief Executive Officer
