Myeloma Peer Support Program
We are happy to announce the launch of our new Myeloma Peer Support Program, created in collaboration with Wellspring, a Canada-wide network of community-based centres that offer programs and services, at no charge and without referral, to anyone, with any type of cancer, at any stage in their journey. Wellspring has extensive experience in creating, managing and executing Peer Support Programs.
All Myeloma Peer Support Volunteers are individuals from within our Myeloma Canada community who have first-hand experience either living with myeloma, or as caregivers to someone with the disease. Volunteers have been carefully selected, and trained to provide you with the peer support you’re looking for. There is no fee for this program.
Myeloma Peer Support Volunteers know what you’re going through.
These Volunteers are your true peers. Their shared experience may help you better understand, manage or cope with your situation, provide you with a different perspective, or valuable ideas and insights. Speaking directly and privately with a Myeloma Peer Support Volunteer may offer you a different level of comfort, knowing that they too, ‘have been there’.
