Ambassador Agent Training

The MIB Ambassador Agents program connects osteosarcoma patients and families to osteosarcoma survivors and their families.

Ambassador Agents have walked the osteosarcoma path and are dedicated, trained, and certified to provide support and hope to families who are in treatment now. We are here to listen. We will hear you. You are not alone. We understand.

A cancer diagnosis is an isolating experience for both the patient and their family. Suddenly, you no longer share the same everyday occurrences as your friends, peers, co-workers and extended family. You are trying to navigate your way through unknown territory without a definitive map, and you feel isolated. We are here to Make it Better.

School aged patients spend so much time in the hospital and traveling for treatment, that their daily activities are vastly different from their friends’. 

Parents are no longer occupied with packing lunches, scheduling piano lessons, carpooling to hockey practice, or gossiping about the neighbors.

Medical professionals are usually wonderful, but they can only answer and anticipate so much. Most families feel despair and as though they are living in a cave, or a war zone alone. Our Ambassador Agents Understand. They have been there. They will MAKE IT BETTER!

This, and every MIB Agents program, is free of charge, thanks to the generous donors who Make it Better. 

We are delighted to offer Ambassador Agent Training at FACTOR 2022 to any warrior, parent, or caregiver who is a minimum of 12 months out of treatment. The sessions will meet on Thursday, June 23rd 8:30 - 12:00 and 1:00 - 4:30 with lunch served at Noon. To Apply for registration please email Isabel Wolf, Director of Programs, isabel@mibagents.org.
