Incoming Cancer Support Community CEO Kelly Harris. Kelly was formerly the CEO of Gilda’s Club Delaware Valley, which is in the process of merging with CSC. Both organizations will operate as Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia by the end of the year. The community center is located at 4100 Chamounix Dr. in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park. This is a very exciting move, and one that will keep the mission alive to provide free social and emotional support programs and services to area men, women and children living with any type of cancer. I've raised over $30,000 for Gilda's Club in honor of my sister, Judy Wilkins, who passed away of ovarian cancer in 2009. Happy Thanksgiving, and happy birthday to my sister Judy who was born on Thanksgiving 1960.
