The Michael’s Mission Patient Mentor Program provides patients, their families and caregivers the opportunity to meet with a Patient Mentor for emotional support, practical information, friendship and assistance from someone who has real life experience facing a colorectal cancer diagnosis.

The volunteer Mentors are matched with a patient according to gender, age at diagnosis, stage of disease and geographical area. Volunteer Patient Mentors are vetted, receive training and continuing education from the Michael’s Mission staff prior to mentoring any new patient.
