Connections: Cancer Survivors

Cancer Survivors

You made it through cancer. Now reach out to someone who is up against it. "Connections" is a volunteer peer support program where cancer survivors (and their caregivers) who completed treatment at least a year ago are trained to become telephone guides or mentors for more newly diagnosed survivors and their families in similar situations to yours. Guides receive training, support, and resources.
