Let's Talk Program

Let’s Talk is a program to connect those diagnosed with cancer with someone to talk to who has “been there and done that;” someone that understands how you feel.

 

Our volunteers have personal experience with:
- Balancing emotions
- Making day to day decisions
- Helping you identify needed resources
- Maintaining relationships during this stressful time
- Learning how to ask for help from family and friends
- Coping with physical changes
- Talking to children and other family members
- Sorting out the challenges of working while undergoing treatment

 

Call us at 907-796-2273 and we will do our best to match you with someone who has had a similar experience and who can offer ongoing support.

 

If you would like to consider being a “Let’s Talk” volunteer, please call us.
