Announcing the Rainbow Survivor’s Network

MUTUAL AID NETWORK FOR LBT CANCER SURVIVORS

Area Resource and Referral Organization for Women (ARROW Inc.) announces the initiation of South Florida’s first network for lesbian, bisexual and transagender cancer survivors. This one to
one “buddy program” will match an LBT person surviving cancer with a newly diagnosed peer. Receiving encouragement and support from someone who has “been there” can be extremely valuable for anyone managing the many challenges associated with cancer treatment and recovery. This is not a support group, but a person to person mentorship program. LBT persons surviving ALL cancers are invited to be a part of this network.

For more information, please contact ARROW Inc. at: 305-892-0928 or 305-766-1220

We’ll also hear members of the Rainbow Survivor Network “buddy’s” share the reason they believe it is very important for all LBT persons to know how beneficial it can be, if one receives a cancer diagnosis, to have a 1 to 1 “buddy”  who can help with support, experience and encouragement in cancer survivorship.
