Here to provide hope.

Cancer Hope Network provides free 1:1 emotional peer support for adult cancer patients and their loved ones. Our 400+ volunteers are at least one year post-treatment or successfully undergoing maintenance therapies. They offer support from diagnosis, through treatment and into recovery.

Who We Are

Cancer Hope Network provides free 1:1 individualized peer support to adult cancer patients and their loved ones.

Our nearly 500 survivor and caregiver volunteers provide support from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

Support Volunteers have faced more than 98% of the cancers that will be diagnosed this year. Our survivor and caregiver mentors live in 36 states (plus Canada). They range in age from 19 to 94 and speak 15 languages. As a result, CHN mentors can provide individualized support for clients based on their greatest needs.

Most importantly, CHN volunteers offer hope and guidance through the wide variety of challenges caused by cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

All volunteer and client matches are overseen from beginning to end by a team of healthcare and social work professionals. The Programs Team trains volunteers and helps clients find additional resources. They collaborate with healthcare and nonprofit professionals to provide seamless care for patients, survivors and families.
