Family & Friends

 

When a close family member or friend is diagnosed with cancer, you begin the cancer journey with them – as well as a journey all your own. However, family members and friends often face this journey alone.

Guide Posts of Strength, Inc. (GPS) understands how you feel and we want to address your needs too. GPS understands your questions, your fears and your desire to help your friend or family member.

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.

Friends and family 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 and credit 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.
