Becoming a Phone Buddy and sharing your personal lung cancer experience can make all the difference in the life of someone faced with the disease. If you have passion for mentoring and supporting others who have been diagnosed lung cancer, please sign up to be a Phone Buddy Volunteer.

*Currently, we are starting to gather interest from caregivers/care partners, who are also interested in providing mentoring to other caregivers. If you are a caregiver who is interested in volunteering, please email Miranda Goff at mgoff@go2foundation.org

Become a Phone Buddy

When you sign up to become a Phone Buddy, you are committing to the following:

  • Completing a questionnaire that outlines your treatment history and experiences
  • Reviewing our easy to follow training guide
  • A 60-90 minute telephone orientation with a GO2 Foundation support staff member
  • Once matched, allowing for 1-3 hours a month to talk on the phone with your buddy (time commitment can vary depending on how often you and your match want to talk)

GO2 Foundation promises to:

  • Connect you with people are who seeking peer support from someone who understands
  • Provide you with a guide to help prepare you to be a Phone Buddy
  • Offer support to questions you may not know how to answer
  • Follow-up to discuss any emotional difficulties that arise
