It can be difficult to understand and manage your feelings when you care for someone diagnosed with cancer. Finding the right emotional and social support can be a lifeline. For family members and friends, we offer counseling, support groups, educational programs, skills-based series, health and wellness programs and social programs. At Gilda’s Club Westchester, caregivers, family and friends can find the support that best fits their needs.
