I Am A Person With Cancer
Dealing with the feelings and impact associated with a cancer diagnosis can be difficult. Whether you are recently diagnosed, in treatment, or post treatment, finding the right emotional and social support is an essential complement to medical care. In addition to our support groups and educational programs, we offer distress screenings, individual counseling, skills-based trainings and health and wellness programs. Here, people living with cancer will be able to find the support that best fits their needs.

Bilingual Cancer Support Hotline
Through the hotline, anyone with a cancer diagnosis can receive phone counseling from an experienced Gilda’s Club licensed mental health professional. One-on-one phone counseling provides individuals the opportunity to discuss their concerns related to their cancer diagnosis with the goal of decreasing emotional distress. To access the Bilingual (English/Spanish) Cancer Support Hotline, please call 914-997-6006.
Funding for this hotline was provided through a contract with the New York State Department of Health and the Breast Cancer Alliance for those with breast cancer.
These support groups, facilitated by an experienced, licensed mental health professional, provide ongoing emotional support for those with a cancer diagnosis. Advanced registration is required for all support groups. For more information, please call 914.644.8844.
