I Have Finished Treatment
Completing treatment for cancer often results in many emotions – happy and relieved that treatment is complete combined with worry and fear about the future. Many survivors or those who are post treatment express concern about ‘re-entering’ their life. Finding support that addresses these specific issues can be helpful. We offer a variety of programs and services that address issues pertaining to life after cancer.

Health and Wellness
Educational/ Supportive Series
Gilda’s Club Westchester offers up to 6 counseling sessions to anyone impacted by cancer. Counseling provides the opportunity to meet with a mental health clinician who is an expert in addressing issues that are commonly experienced by those impacted by cancer, such as anxiety, depression and communication. We also offer consultation for advance directives, specifically selecting a health care proxy and assistance with communicating values and wishes to loved ones and medical teams.
Healthy Lifestyle Workshops and Activities
Educational lectures and healthy lifestyle workshops offer a chance to acquire skills, tools, information, and techniques while forming meaningful connections with others who are living with cancer. Gilda’s Club Westchester is equipped with a spacious and light-filled exercise studio for physical activity classes (such as yoga and Pilates), and stress reduction classes such as mindfulness, an art studio for expressive arts classes, and a full kitchen for workshops on nutrition and healthy cooking.
