Have you ever wondered what would happen if you found out that you, family, a friends, or loved ones found out they have cancer? Most everyone has been affected by this disease in one way or another. After the initial shock you find that you just want to do something to help, make a difference, or take away some of the pain.
CB4L is an opportunity to help a loved one or someone you may have never met through their cancer journey. You can be the difference in someone’s life to help them fight and to keep fighting. All it takes is your heart to help support someone through their journey. Encouraging words, a shoulder to cry on, a pillar to lean against, an ear to listen, and a heart to serve are different ways for you to be a support system.
We all have a super power deep inside of us. If your super power includes wanting to help people, being part of someone’s support system, and wanting to make a difference in someone’s life then CB4L is what you have been seeking and we need you!

There are two kinds of buddies — for the person going through cancer and the person who is a caregiver/support person for a person going through cancer.
Cancer Buddies – The idea is that when you’re in the depths of treatment and emotions and simply being someone who has cancer, as much as you know others love and support you, unless they’ve been where you are, or are where you are, they just cannot understand. So the buddies program matches those with cancer with someone who really does understand, because they too are going through it at the same time, or has been through it before; so that they have someone to talk to, to validate, to talk about fears, to share from that exact same place…
Support Buddies – So too, do those who are the caregivers for those going through treatment face different things than most people could understand. Just to have a sympathetic ear, or ideas to circumvent situations, or how to support yourself as well as those going through treatment. They get it, because they’re either in the situation or have been through it themselves.
Time Commitment: As much or as little as you are willing to give. Easily connected through our messenger app or our beta website, which is secure and a-synchronous, and designed to work around the NEED to speak to communicate.
Writing a journal is a powerful way to get real clarity, find out what you’re really feeling and keep track of your growth and journey. Tamara & Lumari worked together to create a journal to support you along the journey. This is the place to write your insights, feelings, thoughts and deeper understanding about yourself.
