Peer to Peer Mentoring

Families of children diagnosed with brain tumors face many difficult challenges. Because these tumors are rare, family members often don’t know others they can talk to who understand firsthand what they’re going through.

If your family has experienced a child’s brain tumor diagnosis, you’re not alone. The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s Peer to Peer Mentoring Program matches parents, caregivers, teens and young adults with trained mentors who have experienced the challenges of a childhood brain tumor diagnosis.

Mentors provide emotional support, suggest information sources and serve as an example of someone who has “been there.” Being matched to a mentor can be an important way to connect with others experiencing similar challenges.

How do I request a mentor?

Complete the online mentee application, and a member of the PBTF’s Family Support team will contact you once your application is submitted.

Our trained mentors offer one-on-one support and are matched according to multiple factors that may include tumor type, age of patient, type of need, and geographic location.

For questions about the program, call 800-253-6530, x306 or email
