BLOG: MOCA Mentors are here for you

2.3.17 An ovarian cancer diagnosis is difficult. But you aren’t alone – MOCA is here to help and offer you a MOCA Mentor.

Through our MOCA Mentor program, we work to connect ovarian cancer survivors with other women for encouragement, support and advice throughout their journey.

MOCA Mentor Program

If you are an ovarian cancer survivor or a caregiver looking for support through your journey, we would be delighted to put you in contact with a MOCA Mentor. Mentors include ovarian cancer survivors, partners of survivors and daughters and friends of survivors. MOCA Mentors reach out by phone or email to connect with women diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

 

Stefanie Gliniany, MOCA’s Community Support Program Manager, says the program is a vital resource for so many women. “Talking with someone who understands what you are experiencing and is there to provide support and encouragement is extremely important when faced with a cancer diagnosis,” said Stefanie.

If you would like to connect with a MOCA Mentor, please contact Stefanie at (612) 584-3550 or sgliniany@mnovarian.org.

MOCA Mentor Training

Our MOCA Mentors are vital to our support programming – and we’re looking to add MOCA Mentors to our program. Are you a survivor, partner or daughter interested in providing support to others?

On Friday, March 10 from 10 a.m. to noon, we will be hosting a training at the MOCA office for all current and new mentors. This will be a great time to learn about or review mentoring tips and guidelines, connect with other MOCA mentors and enjoy refreshments.

We look forward to catching up with current mentors and encourage those interested in MOCA Mentoring to join us, too. For more information on how to become a MOCA Mentor, contact Stefanie Gliniany at (612) 584-3550 or sgliniany@mnovarian.org.
