Survivor to Survivor

While bladder cancer is among the most commonly diagnosed cancers, it can feel lonely during the bladder cancer journey.  The Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network’s (BCAN’s) 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 bladder cancer patients with trained volunteers who offer a sympathetic ear and share their own experiences as well as insight about their own bladder cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

Support for bladder cancer patients

If you would like to be matched with a bladder cancer survivor, please call 301-215-9099 and leave a message in the general mailbox or send an email to  We will match you to a volunteer and all information is kept confidential. We will do our best to return your or email call as soon as possible.

For survivors looking to give back

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.
