Survivor to Survivor

Survivor to Survivor

While bladder cancer is among the most commonly diagnosed cancers, it can feel lonely during the bladder cancer journey.  The Survivor 2 Survivor (S2S) program connects newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients and caregivers with survivors and co-survivors who have gone through similar experiences.

This program matches callers with trained volunteers who offer a sympathetic ear and share their own experiences as well as insight about bladder cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

For bladder cancer patients

If you would like to be matched with a bladder cancer survivor and would like to speak with someone, please call Morgan Stout at 301-215-9099, ext. 212.  We will match you to a volunteer and all information is kept confidential. We will do our best to return your call as soon as possible. If you have questions, you can send an email to mstout@bcan.org.

Bryson S. said of Survivor to Survivor, “Talking to somebody who has ACTUALLY been through this procedure made me feel at ease and better prepared. I can’t thank BCAN enough for connecting me to them and giving me hope.”

For bladder cancer survivors

If you are a bladder cancer survivor and caregiver, you can volunteer for this program, sharing your experience, answering patient questions and, most important, offering hope. To volunteer, please send an email with the subject line: Survivor to Survivor Volunteer.

BCAN’s only requirement is that volunteers are not actively going through treatment.

The Survivor to Survivor program is available only to patients and survivors in the United States.

This program is made possible by the EMD Serono/Pfizer Alliance. We are grateful for their support.
