Newly launched in 2020, the Woman to Woman Program is a peer-based mentoring program staffed by trained survivor-volunteers helping those newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer to navigate their journey. Mentors meet women immediately following diagnosis and provide emotional support and mentoring throughout the treatment process and beyond.
Interested in Becoming a Mentor?
Woman to Woman is a unique support program that pairs ovarian cancer patients with trained survivor volunteers who provide one-on-one emotional support and mentoring to women when they need it most. From the moment of diagnosis through the end of treatment, Woman to Woman survivor volunteers have helped hundreds of women and their families cope with ovarian cancer. These survivor volunteers give hope, along with the special insights that can only come from someone with their own personal ovarian cancer experience.
Survivor volunteers interested in becoming a mentor should have completed treatment for ovarian cancer and will be paired with a newly diagnosed patient. Mentors will be matched to patients based on cancer type, age, as well as relevant lifestyle factors. New mentors are required to attend one training session before being matched.
