As a community-focused hospital and cancer center, our goal is to care for you from the time of initial diagnosis, before and after surgery, for the duration of radiation or chemotherapy treatments and throughout recovery and survivorship. Our support groups provide you with opportunities to participate according to their own preference or personal needs.
Our Cancer Institute offers cancer support groups at the hospital, through community-based regional programs or online. We offer a wide range of services, educational resources and social activities including:
Doylestown Health Cancer Support Groups
Our cancer support groups meet at Doylestown Hospital, at the Health and Wellness Center in Warrington, PA, or online. Individuals who are diagnosed with or affected by cancer are welcome to attend. Groups cover various topics including living with cancer, life after cancer treatment, managing treatment side effects and bereavement support.
Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia at Doylestown Hospital (formerly Gilda's Club)
Cancer Support Community at Doylestown Hospital is a free membership program for anyone affected by cancer. The club is part of the Delaware Valley chapter and provides support groups; networking, educational and social activities; seminars; post-treatment survivor services and much more.
Local residents living with cancer and their families can find strength and support at the Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia at Doylestown Hospital (formerly Gilda's Club), offering convenient services and special programs for anyone touched by cancer.
The Cancer Support Community is a network of affiliate clubhouses where men, women and children living with cancer, as well as their friends and families, meet to learn how to live with cancer, whatever the outcome. The Cancer Support Community was formed in 2009 by the merger of The Wellness Community and Gilda's Club Worldwide, the second of which was named for Saturday Night Live comedian, Gilda Radner, who died from ovarian cancer in 1989.
The Doylestown Hospital location features a kitchen area, art studio, resource library and space for yoga, meditation and Pilates classes. It is located on the main floor of Doylestown Hospital and is easily accessible from the Main Lobby. In addition to speakers and educational workshops, the focus is on healing and creative arts and the mind/body connection.
All of the Cancer Support Community workshops and programs are free and available to men, women and children.
The Cancer Support Community office is located in the hospital, near the Main Lobby. Look for the club’s signature "Red Door!"
