How to Get Started
Ask your Duke provider for a referral, or contact Bobby’s Coaches directly by email or phone at 919-613-1164. Our program coordinator will reach out to share information about the program and answer your questions. You will then be matched with a peer coach, and a call with them will be scheduled.
Communicating with Your Coach
You can interact privately with your coach by phone or text. We use a secure platform that allows you to communicate via phone and direct messages without exchanging personal contact information. Calls can be scheduled weekly or every other week for three to six months.
Conversations to Address Your Needs
Discussions are tailored to your needs and goals. For example, you might need help advocating for yourself with providers, talking about cancer with friends or significant others, or developing strategies to achieve professional goals. Your coach understands what it’s like to confront cancer as a young adult, so you can more easily share experiences around treatments, symptoms, side effects, fears, and hopes.
