Walking with Patients in Contra Costa County

Regardless of where you are in your cancer journey, Active Support Buddy has caring volunteers to be your walking partner and provide you with moral support. Our goal is to ease the effects of cancer treatment by pairing you with a compassionate Buddy who will walk with you at a convenient outdoor location, such as a park or other public location within Contra Costa or Alameda County.
We are not licensed counselors or medical professionals, but we are people who have walked in your shoes, either as a cancer patient or caregiver. We've been down your path, some of us several times. With your doctor’s approval, we offer light outdoor exercise at a level that meets your customized needs along with supportive companionship. In this way, we hope to offset the effects of treatment, facilitate your healing process, and provide fellowship throughout your journey.
