Looking for Survivors to Beome "Buddies"

Calling all patients who want to support other patients as a “Buddy!" The next buddy training will be held virtually on Wednesday, November 18.

Since 2000, the Buddy Program at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center has been a program that supports newly diagnosed cancer patients through telephone or video. Our pool of 250 survivor-volunteers, or Buddies, provide information and support via telephone contact, text, email, or Zoom. 

We’re looking to add more cancer survivor Buddies to increase the number of Buddy matches we can provide. For more information, please call or email Katherine Rehm, LCSW, 267-438 0574, or Miriam Pomerantz, LSW, 267-250-6980,



Wednesday, November 18th



If you have any questions, please contact us at 800-547-9007, option 3.
