Peer support volunteers are cancer survivors and caregivers of cancer patients who are specially trained to provide emotional and coping support to individuals who are in similar situations. Peer Support is Wellspring’s primary individual support program. Members meet in private with a peer support volunteer where they are invited to share their story, their circumstances and to express any concerns they may have. Peer support volunteers also provide program navigation to help members select programming that is appropriate for their current needs, interest and time.
Peer support is available over the phone or in person select days of the week. Please phone Wellspring at 519.438.7379 to speak with a peer support volunteer or to book an in-person appointment.
Drop-In Program: This program requires no ongoing commitment and is especially helpful for those who are not feeling well, are in treatment or are coping with symptoms that make commitment difficult.
