WeCARE Community-Based Breast Cancer Peer Navigator Program

The first few months after diagnosis can be one of the most traumatic periods in a cancer survivor’s life. To help breast-cancer patients during this difficult time, UC Davis Cancer Center is pleased to announce the WeCARE Community-Based Breast Cancer Peer Navigator Project.
Peer navigators — all cancer survivors themselves — will serve as “cancer coaches” in providing one-to-one guidance and support to newly diagnosed patients. UC Davis will recruit, screen and train navigators who will then be teamed with patients receiving treatment at hospitals throughout the region.
