How First Connection works
When you sign up for First Connection, you will be matched with a trained volunteer (peer) who has firsthand experience with a blood cancer. Your match can be determined by age, type of diagnosis, gender (if requested) or the issue that is most concerning to you. Anyone with a blood cancer can connect with a peer who’s been there.
A First Connection volunteer is a blood cancer survivor. As a peer, they are trained to listen and offer a deep level of understanding and insight by sharing their own experience. Talking to a peer can reassure you about what’s ahead.
There is no charge to participate in this program.
