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 speak with the program coordinator about being referred to a Woman to Woman volunteer survivor, 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.
