Rod found out about the CancerAid Coach Program through his employer following a skin cancer diagnosis and surgery. For Rod, joining the program meant connecting with people who had gone through similar experiences and could offer support and guidance when dealing with a cancer diagnosis. 
“The program was brilliant and covered everything that I needed while providing important resources that I know I can always go back to and rely on. Living alone and away from the support of family, this program has really helped keep me positive as I went through treatment.”
“I would encourage anyone going through a cancer diagnosis to use these programs. Don’t be put off by what you're going through, the support and knowledge these programs provide really does help”.
