Kim Thiboldeaux joined The Wellness Community in 2000 as President and CEO. In 2009, the headquarters offices of The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club joined forces to become the Cancer Support Community, one of the largest providers of social and emotional support worldwide, where Kim has maintained her role as CEO. The combined organization is the largest nonprofit employer of psychosocial oncology mental health professionals in North America, advancing the idea that psychosocial care is as important as medical care in the face of a cancer diagnosis.
