Every cancer patient is different. Some want professional counseling and advice, others just want to talk to someone who has been through something similar. Sometimes it's just nice to go and have a coffee with someone and ask if what you are feeling is normal, what to expect from certain treatments, what could help you while undergoing chemo or radiotherapy.
Our buddies are all volunteers who have been through cancer themselves. They are willing to talk to you; they are not trained experts but they have plenty of experience and are willing to use that to help others.
If you would like a buddy, or would like to be a buddy to one of our members, please contact us and we will find the best match for you.
