Who We Are -
Our volunteers are cancer survivors and caregivers who have completed specialized training. They speak with current patients and caregivers face-to-face or via telephone and are dedicated to supporting you along your journey.
How We Can Help

All support is:

strictly confidential
given by trained MSK patients and caregivers
based on someone’s personal experience
free and available when needed
matched based on diagnosis, age, gender, and other factors that might be important to you and your family, to the best of our abilities

Patients, families, and volunteers often discuss topics including:

coping with a cancer diagnosis
coping with the demands of caregiving
preparing for an appointment
navigating family and work-life balance
making treatment-related decisions
quality of life during and after cancer
advocating for your needs
navigating the medical system
available resources

These conversations can take place in person, over the phone, or via email. Patients and family members consistently tell us they find the experience to be enriching, therapeutic, and healing. All conversations are private and remain confidential.
How to Connect

You may call the Patient and Caregiver Support Program for support at 212-639-5007 or send an email to patient2patient@mskcc.org.

Any member of your clinical team can also make a referral on your behalf. A match is usually made within 48 hours, when possible.
