Women Guiding Women
A peer support and mentoring program for newly diagnosed gynecologic cancer patients.
A diagnosis of gynecologic cancer can seem overwhelming but we can help. Please know that you are not alone and that the Women Guiding Women program is available to lend one-to-one support. After diagnosis you enter into a partnership with your medical team and design your individual treatment plan. An integral part of this plan is your support system. Your family and friends can lend a great deal of needed comfort and encouragement. In addition, the Women Guiding Women program can provide a mentor who has had a similar experience as you to lend support and friendship.
Women Guiding Women mentors are specially trained to help newly diagnosed patients navigate their journey. Through their own experience, the mentors deliver knowledge, support, encouragement, and friendship. Since every woman has an individual treatment plan, we carefully match you with a mentor who has gone through a comparable experience. Because gynecologic cancer affects the entire family, we match you with a mentor who has dealt with similar concerns including partners, children, parents and friends.
