The Sarcoma Alliance, based in San Francisco, has created the Peer-to-Peer Network, to serve the entire country. The Rein in Sarcoma Foundation is pleased to partner with the Sarcoma Alliance in promoting the Peer to Peer Network. Its mission is to facilitate positive relationships between individuals affected by sarcoma so that they may find emotional support, encouragement and information.
The Peer-to-Peer Network consists of individuals affected by sarcoma – Survivors, Caregivers and Loved ones – who wish to correspond with others in the sarcoma community. The Sarcoma Alliance matches peers based on the specific needs of the individuals, and the peers correspond on terms they each agree upon.
How it works:
- After you submit an online application and confidentiality agreement, a Sarcoma Alliance staff member will look for other members of the Network with whom you would be a good match. The staff member will contact you within five days to further discuss your needs and how to best help you.
- Once you are matched, you will receive contact information so that you and your peer can communicate directly, under terms agreed upon by you both. These terms should follow the Guidelines for Participation presented in the application. We expect most peer matches to lead to positive relationships, full of support, encouragement and useful information, and we hope that the Peer-to-Peer Network will help you find a friend in the process.
