Quotes From Our Members

What a positive experience. My match is a wonderful person and plans on calling me as his treatment progresses. I actually got cold chills from speaking with him. Being able to help someone is a tremendous feeling.

- Mark, 4th Angel Patient Mentor

This is an amazing program. My mentor is truly an angel. She is honest, sincere and caring... and has a great sense of humor.

- Audrey, 4th Angel Patient Mentee

I spent so much time and was more than happy to do so, advocating for my Mom (a registered nurse for almost 40 years) and seeking out treatments and ideas. It is now time to help others in her honor... Mentoring and helping others with cancer... is one of my life's missions.

- Blake, 4th Angel Caregiver Mentor

I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and called the 4th Angel program to get assistance with help finding a mentor. Julie was assigned to mentor me and I have so many wonderful things to say about her. Julie is truly an angel from above. She guided me throughout my transplant and has been a positive influence on me. I really love her and I’m thankful for her and your program. I was so confused and depressed to have found out I had cancer. It’s truly a blessing to have someone like Julie that cares for me. Thank you for such a wonderful program!
