Cancer society’s peer support

Peer support often makes things easier for patients and their loved ones. The Cancer Society’s trained volunteers provide peer support for cancer patients and their loved ones throughout the country. Peer support occupies an important place alongside the work of professionals.

I would like a peer support person

The Cancer Society’s provincial associations provide peer support to those who need it. Peer support activities are mainly in Finnish, but some cancer associations have them in Swedish. Some associations may also have peer support persons who use English.
