4th Angel Mentoring Program
The4th Angel is part of the Scott Hamilton CARES Initiative to promote and support world class research and quality care that lead to a cure of cancer. They empower patients and their families via education and guidance for their journey through cancer treatment and survivorship.

How it Works
Your Patient or Caregiver Mentor, paired as closely as possible with respect to diagnosis, gender and age, understands what you are going through because he or she has traveled that same road. Their mission is to provide cancer support in a way no one else can. As your mentor, your 4th Angel will call you to share healthful and positive strategies learned from his or her own experience.

When a new patient or caregiver requests a mentor for support, the program staff facilitates a match. Through a brief phone interview, the program staff evaluates the match’s needs. The best match occurs when mentors and caregivers have as much in common as possible. Not only does it make communication easier, but mutual understanding is enhanced too. Then, the program staff contacts the proper mentor and the mentor calls the patient to offer support and hope.
