Community-Based Cancer Support: Gilda’s Club

Exact Sciences is proud to partner with Gilda’s Club of Madison, which provides free emotional support and cancer education to children and adults impacted by any kind of cancer as well as those who care for them.

Pumping halfway done - Flood waters in the basement

The clubhouse —named for Saturday Night Live comedian Gilda Radner, who died of cancer — was devastated by historic flooding in August 2018. Exact Sciences offered Gilda’s Club an office space until the organization was able to rebuild, and teamed up with the Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation to provide $10,000 to help complete the project. Through this combined effort, Gilda’s Club reopened its red doors in 2019.

Exact Sciences continues to support Gilda’s Club through annual event sponsorships, volunteer efforts, and board participation by Exact Sciences senior vice president of Human Resources, Sarah Condella.
