Your entry into cancer survivorship is a joyous time. But it may also lead to some doubt about how to cope with the many physical and emotional changes from cancer treatment.

Peer-to-Peer Support Program at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center
This program will match you with a mentor who had a common cancer diagnosis and overcame some of the same challenges you're going through.
Mentors are ready to listen and provide support. They'll help you realize that you're not alone — that others have faced similar issues and treatments in their cancer journeys and survivorship.
Call UPMC Hillman Cancer Center Patient Navigation Services at 412-623-4635 if you:
- Know someone who can benefit from this peer cancer support program.
- Think you may be a good candidate for a mentor.
- Have questions or want to learn more about the Peer-to-Peer Support Program at Hillman.
