Survivors of Cancer Advisory Network (SCAN) Mentorship Program

Cancer survivors volunteer their time to give newly diagnosed people hope. These volunteers have been where you are now and understand the fear, confusion and anxiety that overwhelms every day since the diagnosis. It can be as little as one phone conversation to multiple face to face visits with a mentor that you each agree. 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 and all is free of charge. If you are a caregiver or cancer survivor (1 year post treatment) and wish to mentor or if you have recently been diagnosed and would like to set up a mentorship contact Victoria Sims at 352 294 4884 by email below.
