I saw this on CNN today-I thought others might be interested in reading/watching the story about this organization which matches cancer patients with cancer survivors so they can receive support from someone who has been through a similar experience. Cancer caregivers (spouses, parents, children and other family and friends of fighters) also receive 1-on-1 connections with other caregivers and survivors.
My father died of cancer so I thought this might be of interest to others.

It's an amazing organization. I'm an angel mentor and have worked with Jonny directly doing volunteer consulting for IA.

CNN fails to mention that he gives the best hugs!
