Roseanne Roseannadana would. So would Emily Litella and Baba Wawa. Now New Yorkers living with cancer, and those who support them, can help fund operations at Gilda’s Club New York City by paying for everyday purchases with the new Gilda’s Club NYC Visa Platinum card.

Gilda's Club NYC is named for Gilda Radner, the comedian and an original cast member of Saturday Night Live. Ms. Radner died from ovarian cancer in 1989.

"Most people get a credit card statement every month. The Gilda's Club NYC card helps people make a statement every day," says Lily Safani, CEO of Gilda's Club NYC. "By presenting the card in restaurants, shops, online and elsewhere, supporters help Gilda's Club provide social and emotional support to New Yorkers living with cancer, free of charge."
