We are very excited to be partnering with the 4th Angel Program to provide cancer survivors and caregivers the opportunity to be matched with a mentor who has been thru a similar cancer diagnosis. The 4th Angel Program is a part of the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. In addition, once you complete your treatment, you can sign up to be a mentor and assist other cancer survivors.
Here’s How It Works:
You will be paired with someone as closely as possible with respect to diagnosis, gender and age, who understands what you are going through because he or she has traveled that same road. Their mission is to provide cancer support to you in a way no one else can. As your mentor, your mentor will call you to share healthful and positive strategies learned from his or her own experience.
When you request a mentor for support, the 4th Angel program staff facilitates a match. Through a brief phone interview, the program staff will evaluate your needs. The best match occurs when mentors and caregivers have as much in common as possible. Not only does it make communication easier, but mutual understanding is enhanced too. Then, the program staff contacts the proper mentor and the mentor will call you to offer support and hope.
Any adult with cancer or caring for a person with cancer (Caregiver) is eligible to be matched with a mentor.
