Leukemia Society Offers Patients Peer Counseling

NEW YORK--The Leukemia Society of America has launched First Connection, a pilot program for helping newly diagnosed leukemia patients and their families receive counseling and information in the initial hours after diagnosis. Patients will be visited by a specially trained peer volunteer who has gone through a similar experience.

Funded by a grant from Roche Labs, this free service will be offered in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Columbia, SC, Birmingham, Charlotte, and St. Louis.
