Mentors

To know the road ahead ask those who are coming back.

No one knows the cancer journey better than one who has traveled this road.

Family, friends and even strangers have always informally mentored cancer patients, paying forward their experiences, their lessons learned and their compassion and understanding. Guide Posts of Strength, Inc. (GPS) now takes this process a step further by training mentors in skills that will enhance their ability to help fellow cancer patients through the journey. Once they are trained then we carefully pair our mentors with newly diagnosed patients.

  • Mentor applicants must be approved by their oncologist, pass a personal background check and undergo training by GPS.
  • Once a mentor candidate has completed training, he or she is assigned to a newly diagnosed cancer patient who can benefit from the mentor’s experience.
  • Mentors and patients are matched based on several criteria including but not limited to: type of cancer, age, occupation and marital status.
