Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
 Team Tony carefully matches and individually pairs a person touched by cancer (a cancer fighter or survivor) with someone who has fought and survived the same type of cancer (a Team Mate). Cancer caregivers (spouses, parents, children and other family and friends of fighters) also receive 1-on-1 support with other caregivers and survivors. These 1-on-1 relationships inspire hope and offer the chance to ask personal questions and receive support from someone who is uniquely familiar with the experience. Our service is absolutely free and helps anyone touched by cancer, at any cancer stage level, at any age, living anywhere along Florida’s Suncoast Community.
Programs
Description
Team Tony's 1-on-1 cancer support is a unique program pairing cancer survivors with cancer fighters to inspire and support those impacted by cancer. We believe the cancer journey can be made easier for the cancer fighter when the experience is shared by a cancer survivor who’s been there, who understands, and can provide 1-on-1 support along the way. Our unique service is free to anyone who’s been touched by cancer. No one should face cancer alone!
Budget $36,000

Program Linked to Organizational Strategy Yes
Population Served People/Families of People with Cancer Adults K-12 (5-19 years)
Short Term Success
In the short-term, our work helps individuals confront the anxiety and uncertainty one is faced with when tackling this potentially life-threatening illness and gives them the peer support, strength and confidence to approach it with hopes of a positive outcome.
Long Term Success
Individuals receiving support from our team will develop the support necessary to lead a more normal life with or without cancer. Ideally, we will see long-term success in action through those who come back to the program and work with our team as a cancer survivor, providing support to others.
Program Success Monitoring
We plan to use self-assessments to help individuals monitor how they feel before and after our supportive services.  By monitoring the number of individuals who come back into the program to serve others, we can also understand the impact and meaning of this program. 
Program Success Examples
Team Tony was recently contacted by the mother of an 18 year old brain cancer patient. The family and the patient were frightened and wanted the counsel of someone outside of the medical community who had actually been through the difficult prognosis and struggle. An individual from the team who had brain cancer met the family and, with input from the patient, decided to chat in a comfortable environment for him, walking outdoors at Marina Jack's. Talking about similar experiences was a comfort, and Team Tony continued the relationship over the next few months, facilitating a connection to fast track the patient at Duke University's Brain Cancer Institute. Today, the young man is working full time at Publix and has gotten through this difficult period with a "team".
