s," says Bull. "No one is untouched emotionally when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer. We know that when there is cancer in the family, everyone is affected, not just the person diagnosed, but the entire family and even their friends. We have incorporated this understanding of psychosocial health into all that Gilda's Clubs offer."

Additional findings of the IOM study confirm, "All components of the health care system that are involved in cancer care should explicitly incorporate attention to psychosocial needs into their policies, practices, and standards addressing clinical health care."

Free to all members, Gilda's Clubs are warm, welcoming, home-like meeting places that provide a planned program of emotional and social support as a supplement to medical care. The Gilda's Club program is not only for the diagnosed but also for children whose parent or loved one has cancer, the entire extended family and caring friends. Together, as a community, members learn to LIVE with cancer whatever the outcome.

Gilda's Club Worldwide has clubhouses in 22 cities throughout North America and 9 more properties in development. For more information on Gilda's Club Worldwide and their program philosophy please visit http://www.gildasclub.org. For the complete IOM study, visit http://www.nap.edu.
