Peer support volunteers know what it’s like to live with cancer because they are cancer survivors or were caregivers to someone with cancer. Through CancerConnection, our nationwide telephone support program, peer support volunteers offer encouragement, compassion and practical support – from diagnosis, throughout treatment and beyond – to the person living with cancer and their family.  
 
Peer support volunteers are matched based on factors such as type of cancer, sex, treatment, side effects, relationship to the person who is diagnosed, age and family situation. All volunteers receive extensive training and ongoing support. 
 
The Canadian Cancer Society is here to help people living with cancer. If you’ve been through cancer, either as a survivor or caregiver, you can offer hope and support to others. As a trained volunteer, you will draw upon your own cancer experience to offer encouragement, compassion and helpful information to adults living with cancer and those caring for a loved one with cancer.
