This strong team of compassionate volunteers does not give medical advice, instead, they help health communities adapt to the realities of living with a serious illness. PEN Network Managers pay it forward as the communities’ human bridge to survivorship as they understand first-hand the anxieties and uncertainties that come with a cancer diagnosis.
“Joining PEN’s network of cancer managers has truly been inspiring. Although we’re all across the world, conversing with them via email and Zoom chats and hearing their stories and thoughts of how to resonate with more patients is what feeds my soul. PEN is constantly growing, with their goal of representing all cancers.” — Carly Flumer, PEN Network Manager, excerpted from The Power of the PEN Network Manager Program
