Survivors of Cancer Advisory Network (SCAN) Mentorship Program
SCAN is an initiative of the UF HealthStreet Cancer Engagement Program
- : To provide an environment that encompasses support, safety and encouragement to individuals enduring cancer
SCAN’s goal is to provide people in Northeast Florida/ Alachua County with information and support from diagnosis through recovery.
Our mentors are trained to provide information, resources, and one-on-one peer support to those who are facing or living with cancer as well as those care giving. Efforts are made to match the volunteers to the mentees by criteria that are covered in our application process such as diagnosis, treatment type, age, etc.
This mentorship can take place via telephone, face-to-face, or other means that suit both mentor and mentee.
