Give or Receive Mentoring Support
4th Angel will pair you up with someone who understands. The 4th Angel Mentoring Program is a cancer patient peer-mentoring service provided by the Cleveland Clinic Foundation Taussig Cancer Institute. This innovative program matches patients or caregivers with trained volunteer mentors who have undergone similar situations. While emphasizing one-on-one contact, matches are primarily made based on similar age and cancer experiences to best empower mentees with knowledge, awareness, hope and a helping hand.

Request A Mentor

Anyone diagnosed with cancer or caring for someone with cancer is eligible to be matched with a mentor. When a mentor is requested, the mentee will be matched based on their cancer experience. Our trained mentors will contact the patient to offer one-on-one support.


One-on-one support with a trained volunteer mentor through online chat, phone or via email.

Quotes From Our Members


What a positive experience. My match is a wonderful person and plans on calling me as his treatment progresses. I actually got cold chills from speaking with him. Being able to help someone is a tremendous feeling.

- Mark C. 4th Angel Mentor


This is an amazing program. My mentor is truly an angel. She is honest, sincere and caring... and has a great sense of humor.

- Audrey Patient Mentee


I spent so much time and was more than happy to do so, advocating for my Mom (a registered nurse for almost 40 years) and seeking out treatments and ideas. It is now time to help others in her honor... Mentoring and helping others with cancer... is one of my life's missions.
