Long Beach Memorial Medical Center
A peer mentoring program for newly diagnosed breast or gynecologic cancer patients who will be matched with a trained breast or gynecological cancer survivor. The goal of the program is to provide support for newly diagnosed women with gynecologic cancers by women who have been there.
Mentors are committed volunteers who are prepared to assist women through active peer support, compassionate understanding, information support, navigation and guidance. The program is free of charge and available to any newly diagnosed breast or gynecologic cancer patient, regardless of where treatment is being received.
