PeerWISE

Similar to our ParentWISE® program, our patients and former patients find comfort in talking with people who have been in their shoes. PeerWISE is a way for patients and former patients over 18 to mentor adolescents and teens, and sometimes even their parents, as they go through the treatment process.

Our PeerWISE volunteers talk with patients and families about what it’s like to go through treatment, and also how their lives are currently. These conversations help normalize what can be extraordinary care plans, encouraging patients to stick to their treatments to make sure they also get great results.

Our coordinators work with families and volunteers to schedule meetings between people with children with similar experiences. Contact Volunteer Resources​ at 312.227.3388 if you would like to have a volunteer coordinator contact you about participating in the program.
