Cancer Buddy Programme
At Sunway Medical Centre, Sunway City, we are not only equipped to treat every medical possibility, but we are also committed to providing support beyond medical care. We ensure that individuals diagnosed with cancer receive adequate emotional support by connecting them with our Cancer Buddy Programme.
The Cancer Buddy Programme is a system where cancer survivors volunteer to support patients undergoing cancer treatment. This personalised support is incredibly beneficial throughout a patient’s cancer treatment journey.
What is the Buddy Programme?
The Buddy Programme is a peer-to-peer support system that matches cancer patients with survivors of the same type of cancer. These trained mentors, who are cancer survivors offer support and guidance during a difficult time. They provide first-hand experience, mentoring, and hope.
Benefits of the Buddy Programme
The Buddy Programme offers several benefits:
- Emotional Support: Connecting with someone who has been through a similar experience can provide emotional support and understanding.
- Practical Advice: Cancer survivors can offer practical advice on how to cope with treatment and its side effects.
- Shared Experience: The shared experience can help reduce feelings of isolation and fear.
- Hope: Hearing from someone who has survived cancer can inspire hope and positivity.
The Buddy Programme serves as a valuable resource for individuals undergoing cancer treatment, offering support, practical advice, and a sense of community.
