Nevada Cancer Coalition’s ThriveNV program was born out of the desire to improve the lives of all Nevadans diagnosed with cancer and the lives of those caring for them. ThriveNV recognizes the critical role caregivers play in caring for people with cancer. The ThriveNV community connects Nevadans to cancer support and resources, shares the personal stories of those who’ve survived cancer, and provides tools to learn about cancer survivorship. On our website we have a learning center with articles and videos, and information on community groups across the state and nationwide.
We’ve assembled a collection of resources to support your work and our patient navigators are available to help you find resources, overcome barriers to care, or just listen to your concerns. Caregivers can request help from one of our navigators by filling out our request patient navigation form. Our navigators can speak English or Spanish, and translation service for other languages is available.
We’ve also partnered with Imerman Angels, a national peer-mentoring nonprofit that matches caregiver mentors with other caregivers looking for one-on-one support from someone who’s been there. Mentors in the program speak a variety of different languages and have supported survivors who’ve been diagnosed with more than 145 different types of cancer. In addition to matching caregivers with peer support, Imerman Angels, recruits volunteer caregivers who want to share their knowledge and support with others as a mentor.
