Get matched with a buddy

The Alliance hand-matches patients and caregivers with a buddy who has had similar experiences. With enough communication, buddies can establish a long-lasting, supportive friendship.

Become a buddy

As a survivor or caregiver, you know better than anyone else what it is like to go through colorectal cancer. Share your experience and expertise by volunteering as a peer-to-peer buddy.

I’m a buddy to be helpful and get help in return.
