Friend for Life Cancer Support Network has helped persons navigate cancer from diagnosis through treatment for almost 30 years. Our unique approach is to pair a Peer Navigator (trained survivor) with a patient diagnosed with the same type of cancer and facing similar treatment. Peer support improves health outcomes, quality of life and adherence to treatment. No other organization in the area offers this form of one-on-one support for all types of cancer. 

“I was so desperate to talk to someone that was diagnosed close to my age and a survivor. My FFL has been incredible and we still keep in touch through this difficult journey.” ~ Colleen

“Even though I have a good support system with family and friends, it is not like having support from someone who has been through it. ~ Ben

“It was as if I could finally breathe. Friend for Life gave me hope, and I carry that with me every day of my life and share it with whoever needs it.” ~ Elsa

“Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be a volunteer… I have learned so much, grown so much from this experience.” ~ Susannah
