The Mentor Program

Through this program, Walk With Sally aims to create meaningful relationships between children and adults who share the common bond of living with or losing a loved one to cancer. We achieve this by matching each child with an advocate who understands the struggles they face on a daily basis.

The PROGRAM

• Match kids impacted by a loved one’s cancer with an adult who’s had a similar experience.

• This “friendship” lasts one year, spending 6 to 8 hours a month together participating in activities out in the community.

• Through this friendship the children have an advocate who can offer guidance and give them the individualized attention they need.


The CHILDREN

• Between the ages of 7 to 17

• Have a parent or sibling with cancer, who has passed away from cancer, or is in remission from cancer

• Struggling to deal with the aftermath cancer can cause


The MENTORS

• 18+ years old

• Loves working with kids

• Impacted by cancer (either witnessing a loved one’s battle or is a cancer survivor)

• Background check (LiveScan fingerprinting) & TB test required

• Willing to commit 6-8 hours/month for 1 yr
