Telephone peer matching

Being diagnosed with cancer is not easy to accept. Talking about it with those around us can be just as difficult.

Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sharing with a person who has gone through a similar experience

Through our telephone peer support line, whether you have cancer or are caring for someone who does, you can be put in touch with a person who has gone through the same trial. 

In total confidence, you can share your experience, express your feelings and discuss the effects of the disease on your life, as well as receive encouragement from a volunteer who has also walked that path. 

Free and confidential, across Quebec:

“The telephone peer support proved really helpful for me after my breast cancer surgery. A positive and caring woman helped me get through the treatments. Every phone call meant comfort for me. I asked my questions about what was going to happen at every step. I felt good and positive, and a lot of fear fell away as we talked.”
