Our Story

The Friends of Gilda’s Society of Nova Scotia was started in 2012 by a group of Haligonians who had all been touched by cancer, and were inspired by the success of Gilda’s Club and Cancer Support Community programs in providing support to individuals and families living with the disease. Excited by the idea of creating a place where all people affected by cancer – men, women, children, teens, friends and family - could come together and learn from each other, these individuals committed to making program a reality for Nova Scotians affected by cancer.
