Collaborative offers cancer survivor support in One2One call-in program

The statewide nonprofit, Maine Coalition to Fight Prostate Cancer ( offers men and women the opportunity to reach out to others through its “One2One Confidential“ outreach call-in program. At present, thirteen men and women have been trained and stand ready to respond via phon, to share their personal experiences with others and help guide them through what can often be a difficult emotional journey, according to a press release from MCFPC.

Facilitator Nelson Leavitt will host a free, confidential hybrid training session (Zoom or in-person) so that those who have been on their prostate cancer journey can work most comfortably with those calling in that will tentatively take place in the Augusta area in May.

For those who only wish to confidentially call in, Leavitt will match them with one of the men or women whose experience most closely resembles the caller’s needs.

To apply or to have your questions answered about this program, or to reach a team member and arrange a private discussion, call 855-552-7200 ext. 801 or send an email to
