Have you ever wanted to share your experiences with melanoma to help another patient or caregiver? Are you a patient or caregiver looking for some one on one support? MNC would love to have you join our new Peer to Peer Support Volunteer Program: Within Reach!
This program is designed to connect melanoma patients to a trained and certified peer who has also faced the disease. Peers will share their stories, act as a supportive mentor and provide support. This service will be offered by telephone and can connect patients anywhere in the country. Patients can create a special relationship with one another and be able to relieve some of their stress, worries, concerns, and fears that come from living with cancer diagnosis. Peer mentors will be assigned (based on availability) by similar geographic location, diagnosis, life situation, etc.
If you are interested in becoming a Peer to Peer volunteer or would like to be matched with a fellow patient/caregiver please contact Maureen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-901-5121 ext. 103.
