The initial diagnosis can put you in a void of feeling completely alone, because although you may have very capable doctors and nurses and be surrounded by family and friends that love you, many of them will not understand firsthand what you are going through. That’s why 4th Angel is so important. The program pairs you with a cancer survivor who provides you with support and answers to the difficult questions.
One-on-one support over the phone or via email.
4th Angels are empathetic and have firsthand answers to all the hard-to-ask questions.
As your mentor and guide, your 4th Angel will share helpful and positive strategies learned from his or her own experience.
When a patient requests a mentor, the program staff facilitates a match with respect to diagnosis, gender and age.
