Peer Advocate Match

Forge’s unique Volunteer Peer Advocate program matches survivors and co-survivors with local, trained, and compassionate mentors who have “been there, too.” Because they have gone through a cancer diagnosis themselves or cared for someone who has, they are able to provide personal emotional and social support. They can also go the extra step of going to doctor’s appointments with you to hold your hand, be an extra set of ears, and take notes. If you would like to be paired with a peer mentor or would like to volunteer as a peer mentor, please contact Jinida Holt, Forge’s Volunteer and Support Coordinator at (205) 990-5368 or [email protected].
