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 you select programming that is appropriate for your current needs, interest and time.
Peer Support is available via telephone.
Please send an email firstname.lastname@example.org providing your contact information and a few details to help schedule your appointment with a Peer Support Volunteer.
