Woman to Woman
Woman to Woman is a unique network of trained volunteer survivors of gynecologic cancer who provide hope, one-on-one support, education and advocacy for women in treatment for gynecologic cancer at Mount Sinai, their partners, families and caregivers. It is the only support program of its kind in the country for women with gynecologic cancers. Every woman at Mount Sinai who is diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer is given the option to meet with a Woman to Woman volunteer and discuss any and all issues associated with diagnosis and treatment. The volunteers, who were all treated at Mount Sinai as well, often stay involved with the patients for years. The program also offers resources for male partners of women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer, a group often overlooked by health care workers.
