Recruiting Cancer Survivors/Caregivers for New Patient Support Program

August 7, 2008

Are you a Vanderbilt cancer survivor or caregiver who wants to give back?

Have you “been there” and are passionate about encouraging others in the midst of their own cancer experience?

Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is launching a new program, “The Hope Connection”, a peer-to-peer support volunteer opportunity for adult cancer survivors and caregivers.

Hope Connection volunteers provide confidential one-on-one telephone support to cancer patients and their families who wish to talk to someone who has “been there” and successfully met the challenges of a cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Hope Connection training to prepare volunteers for this supportive peer role will be offered on Friday/Saturday, September 12 and 13, 2008 at Gilda’s Club, Nashville.

For more information or to become a Hope Connection volunteer, please contact Jane Condon at or 936-1072.
