Expansion of the Maine Buddy Program

To continue and expand the Maine Buddy Program which connects those seeking support with trained volunteers who have "been there." 

The Cancer Community Center was awarded a grant to strengthen and sustain the Center's peer-based networking and support programs. A major objective was to increase the depth and breadth of the Center's support groups, which was feedback that we had received from our staff and the community.
