From patients
"Having the opportunity to speak with someone who has been through a similar experience, who can answer my questions, no matter how big or small, and is willing to listen to and empathize with, my fears and concerns is invaluable."

Outreach

 
The 4th Angel Mentoring Program is active in a national outreach initiative. We are trying to reach as many cancer survivors, patients and their loved ones as possible. In doing so, we have established many new relationships with national and local organizations.

We have recently partnered with The Cancer Support Community. The Cancer Support Community (formerly The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club) provides emotional and social cancer support through a network of nearly 50 affiliates, more than 100 satellite locations and online. Each of these locations distribute The 4th Angel Program materials to those in need of emotional support.

The 4th Angel Mentoring Program has also partnered with CaringBridge which provides free websites that connect people experiencing a significant health challenge to family and friends, making each health journey easier. Authors add health updates and photos to share their story while visitors leave messages of love, hope and compassion in the guestbook. The American Cancer Society offers comprehensive patient services and programs designed to help our patients with cancer-related information, day-to-day living, and emotional support needs. The 4th Angel Program information can be found on their website and national hotline at 800-227-2345.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has listed the 4th Angel Program information on their website and National hotline as well. The National Cancer Institute coordinates the National Cancer Program, which conducts and supports research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer, rehabilitation from cancer, and the continuing care of cancer patients and the families of cancer patients.
