Cancer Hope Network provides free one-on-one peer support to adult cancer patients and their loved ones. Nearly 500 survivor and caregiver volunteers provide support from diagnosis, through treatment and into survivorship – including bereavement, when necessary.
Support Volunteers have faced more than 80 types of cancer—that’s over 98% of the cancers that will be diagnosed this year. They represent 36 states (plus Canada), range in age from 19 to 94, speak 15 languages, and are prepared to offer hope and guidance through a wide variety of challenges that accompany a cancer diagnosis. All volunteer and client matches are overseen from beginning to end by a team of healthcare and social work professionals.
Their Mission is to instill hope in cancer patients and their loved ones through 1-1 peer support from survivors and caregivers who have faced a similar experience. Their Vision is to create a world in which no one faces cancer alone.
