HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Through this friendship, the children have an advocate who can offer guidance and give them the individualized attention they need.

DESCRIPTION

You might know an incredible adult human who is ALSO a great fit to be a mentor.  This mentor would connect with a child between the ages of 7-17 who has a parent/guardian or sibling who has passed away from cancer, is going through cancer, or is in remission from cancer.


ITEMS NEEDED

The qualities and attributes of your mentor ideally include:

  • 22+ years old
  • Loves working with kids
  • Has been impacted by cancer – either witnessing a loved one’s battle or is a cancer survivor
  • Background check
    – LiveScan fingerprinting
    – TB Test
  • Willing to commit 6-8 hours monthly for at least one year.
