    Those impacted by cancer often benefit from Peer to Peer Support. Peer to Peer Support is the practical help and advice they receive from others who have lived through similar situations and allows a person to vent their frustration, learn about new treatments or research protocols, and exchange information. The key to how this works is likely quite simple. Knowing that others have had similar experiences and that they can help may make all the difference in how someone lives through the challenges of cancer. People with peer support can learn how to communicate better with the health care team because of the experience of others and this can also lead to better preparation for cancer treatment and empowerment to ask more questions. *You will be contacted by one or our Support Navigators prior to being connected to a Peer.

I do not know you. I do not know your cancer story or status. I do not know what support or needs you might have or need in the future. I do know we have a Peer to Peer Program that is here and willing to support you at any step in your journey. Please don’t ever hesitate to contact Cancer Pathways Midwest when you need somebody to walk with you and/or your loved ones.

When cancer became my diagnosis, I feared the unknown. I spent countless nights writing bullet point after bullet point of questions for my healthcare providers. I came to realize that no matter what the answers to those questions were, I would not be able to change the diagnosis.

At that point I decided I would need a supportive community, more than my family and friends, to help me in overcoming my anxiety and settling my fears. For me, this community was Gilda’s Club, now Cancer Pathways Midwest.
