Patient Mentors are here to help. 

Enjoy the benefits of having social support from patients like yourself.
 
Learn about treatment options from patients with real life experience.
 
Set personal goals and talk about them with a patient mentor.
 
Obtain useful resources and support to strengthen your partnership with the healthcare team. 

Step 1

Get to know a few of our Patient Mentors by topic of interest. Below are some of our Patient Mentor profiles and their introduction videos. 

Step 2

Once you’re ready to connect with a Patient Mentor, please complete a Mentoring Application (English / Spanish) and Confidentiality Waiver (English / Spanish). Provide your completed application to your facility staff and ask them to send it to the Network 3 contact.
