The Buddy Program offers support to individuals suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromylgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

What is a Buddy?

A buddy is a volunteer who provides support and understanding to alleviate involuntary isolation among people with CFS, FM, and MCS. Volunteers offer different kinds of supportive behavior during visits or by phone 1 to 2 times a week. They provide emotional support by being empathetic, trustful and good listeners. They also provide instrumental support by helping their buddies in any direct way such as organizing files, writing letters or creating photo albums.
