The Gilda’s Club in Madison, Wis., is changing its name over concerns that young people won’t recognize the name of comedian Gilda Radner.

The Madison-area chapter of Gilda’s Club will change its name to Cancer Support Community Southwest Wisconsin in January.

The executive director says the organization wants to make clear exactly what it does.

Fans of the comedian have been critical of the decision.

Radner was an original member of Saturday Night Live, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989.

Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto has no plans to change its name. Earlier this month, the organization held a star-studded fundraiser at the Sony Centre, featuring Russell Peters and performances by Nelly Furtado.
