Our Mission

To help persons recently diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones navigate the path through diagnosis, treatment and recovery by pairing them with a trained survivor of a similar experience so they can face cancer with someone who's been there.

What We Do

Friend for Life is a network of cancer survivors and caregivers 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.
