AIM’s Peer Connect mentoring program carefully pairs newly diagnosed melanoma patients with melanoma survivors who have had their own melanoma experience. Our mentors provide support, encouragement, and special insights that can only come from someone who has been on the same journey. The program offers flexibility for both mentors and the people with whom they are matched.
How Does a Mentor Help?
- Mentors use their unique perspective to provide support, hope, and encouragement.
- Mentors help alleviate fears, talk through concerns, discuss available melanoma support resources, and provide reassurance.
- Mentors share their melanoma stories and coping strategies.
