Peer to Peer

Although the experience of people diagnosed with cancer varies greatly from one person to another, they all need a good support system in order to cope throughout the different stages of the process. Different support systems have thus been developed including community support groups, online cancer support groups, networks, forums, and charitable organizations. A peer to peer support group may give patients hope and comradery. Below you’ll find several organizations who can provide the support you or your loved one may need. Get connected with a survivor or someone walking the path with you
