Remember When You Were Diagnosed with Breast Cancer?
Consider Becoming an ABCD Mentor & Provide One-to-One Support to Those on the Journey Now
Please join us at Gilda’s Club in Madison, Wisconsin on January 26th and February 2nd for ABCD’s New Mentor Training. Training is free and includes materials and meals.
ABCD mentors are a special team of volunteers. They are breast cancer survivors and co-survivors who agree to be available to provide one-to-one telephone support for those dealing with breast cancer now. They are matched with people needing support based on common diagnoses, treatment plans and life circumstances. The match is truly personal.
Not only will class participants be prepared to volunteer as ABCD mentors, but they will be a reliable breast cancer resource for anyone they meet affected by breast cancer. A detailed description of mentoring can be found here: http://www.abcdbreastcancersupport.org/how-to-support/become-a-mentor/
The training is open to all affected by breast cancer, but we strongly recommend those taking the class be at least one year from diagnosis. Those who have coped with inflammatory breast cancer are especially encouraged to consider becoming a mentor.
Registration begins January 3rd.
