There is a 20-year-old treasure in Midtown that just about everyone can use, and that's because just about everyone has been affected by cancer.

To Celebrate Tennessee, we visited Gilda's Club. You've probably heard of it, but you won't believe what we discovered.

At 10 a.m. on Fridays, you will find a teacher, and sometimes just a few students, doing Tai Chi in a Midtown home, but there's a lot of community going on that you don't see.

Gilda's club is a free non-profit cancer support organization, celebrating 20 years in the Mid-State.

More than three thousand people have walked through their doors to enjoy the benefits of a program built around support groups.

It's not just for women, but also men, children, and teens — anyone affected by cancer. There's a resource library, lifestyle workshops, yoga classes, and cooking classes.

It’s support, any way you need it, especially for people who might feel isolated after a cancer diagnosis.

Those with Gilda's Club said they'll make room for you in Tai Chi next Friday.
