Would you like to be a Peer Leader?

Peer to Peer Support Groups are a wonderful way to meet with other MBC patients to share advice, encouragement and challenges, compare treatment facilitates, learn about local resources and simply enjoy the company of others who are on the same journey.

We are in need of Peer Leaders! The METAvivor Peer to Peer Support Group Leader Training Program will give you all the information and training you need to establish your own group.
