Support Group

Heart Transplant Peer to Peer Support Program

Led by:
Cathy Miller, LCSW and Melissa Calnon, MSW

Mission Statement

To broaden healthcare for patients and families through the unique support and understanding of peer-to-peer mentoring, to foster happier, healthier lives and reduce feelings of isolation.

Carefully selected, trained, supported peer mentors help patients and their support circle address challenges related to their medical condition.

On a one-to-one basis, individuals with similar health and life circumstances are linked to develop meaningful, mutually beneficial relationships based on trust:

  • Listen to concerns
  • Share personal experiences
  • Serve as resource for developing coping strategies
  • Provide guidance in negotiating healthcare systems

We look forward to welcoming you to our caring and vibrant community.
