What We Do

“They told me exactly what I was going to go through and that helped me feel more in control and more knowledgeable about my treatment.”

Friend for Life (FFL) is a network of cancer survivors who provide compassionate, one-on-one support to others diagnosed with cancer, and to their loved ones.

At your request, Friend for Life will match you with a trained volunteer who has experienced a form of cancer and/or course of treatment similar to yours. To the extent possible, we also match for age and gender.

Friend for Life volunteers do not advise or participate in medical decisions. Rather, we serve as sounding boards to help you sort through the roller-coaster of thoughts and feelings you may be experiencing.

Rest assured, you are not alone. Let us be of help and support.
