Gilda's On The Go
Gilda's Club is named in honor of Gilda Radner, who, when describing the emotional and social support she received when she had cancer, called for such places of participation, education, hope and friendship to be made available for people with cancer and their families and friends everywhere. The New York flagship facility, with its International Training Center, opened in June of 1995.
MultiCare Regional Cancer Center and Gilda’s Club Seattle have partnered to bring cancer support programs and activities to Tacoma. The Gilda’s on the Go program brings many of the activities and events offered by Gilda’s Club Seattle to:
MultiCare Regional Cancer Center’s Tacoma General Hospital
1003 S. Fifth St.
Tacoma, WA 98405
This collaboration offers a comprehensive program of:
- Emotional Support
- Education, and
- Healthy Lifestyle Opportunities
All activities are FREE to participants and are open to all members of our community who are affected by cancer, not only patients of MultiCare Regional Cancer Center.

Gilda's Club Seattle offers a broad, community-based program of social, emotional, and educational support for cancer survivors, their loved ones and friends that provides sustained support, education and resources on-site in the Seattle Clubhouse and off-site with collaborating partners.
Free of charge to participants, and nonprofit, they offer a Five Core Component program that includes a variety of support services, educational opportunities, classes and workshops, social events, and resources and referral. Our program serves anyone touched by cancer across the cancer continuum -- from diagnosis, through treatment and post-treatment, survivorship, and bereavement, including children, teens, and whole families.
