Get connected with a survivor or family member who has been in your shoes. Whether you could use advice on side effects, treatment or caring for a loved one, your Buddy has been there and can help you through it. Buddies are vetted, trained and then matched based on stage of diagnosis, age, gender and primary concerns.
Being a Buddy is an honor. It means you get to share the ups and downs as a new friend experiences the joys and fears of the medical system.
I have the most wonderful Buddy—she was my lifesaver. Now I would love to be a Buddy for someone going through what I just went through.
