CARE-Net is a unique “buddy system” that matches trained volunteers with patients who need a sympathetic ear, a caring heart or a helping hand as they navigate the health care system.
These volunteers provide support to patients and families through calls, letters and visits. They also help connect patients with necessary resources and, when needed, facilitate communication with medical providers. Many of these volunteers are survivors of cancer or other serious illnesses so they bring a special understanding to their role.
Because of support from the community, CARE-Net services are available to patients and families at no charge.
