The treatment decisions were as varied as the volunteers who made them, but today, the volunteers’ focus is singular: helping other patients and caregivers.
Late this summer, CHN hosted a series of web trainings to train a new class of Support Volunteers. These survivors will use their experiences to help patients now fighting cancer – providing a listening ear, sharing tips and inspiring hope.
We’re delighted to welcome these Support Volunteers to the team.
- Bill – Myelofibrosis (type of Myeloproliferative Neoplasm – MPN, JAK2+)
- David – Brain 4 (Glioblastoma, EGFRv3+)
- Dick – Lung 4 (NSC, with recurrence/metastases to brain)
- Dotty – Lung 4 (NSC-Adenocarcinoma, EGFR+)
- Ron – Head & Neck – Tonsil 4 (HPV+)
For more than 30 years, Cancer Hope Network has provided one-on-one emotional support to cancer patients and their loved ones by matching them with trained volunteers. Each of our more than 400 Support Volunteers are at least one year post-treatment or successfully undergoing maintenance therapies.
