The Network for Patients and FamiliesA peer support program for patients, family members, partners and friends living with a diagnosis of cancer.

Ric Paulson is a Network volunteer at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Resource Room. Boston, MAAlthough each person is an individual with his or her own circumstances, diagnosis and treatment plan, it often helps to talk with someone who has been through a similar experience - someone "who's been there." Volunteers for the Network can be patients, family members, partners or friends who are experienced in living with cancer. They are eager to listen and to share their experience with others by telephone or in person.
