Survivor Journeys provides social and emotional support services to cancer survivors, families, and caregivers. Services are built on collaboration with local providers and cancer survivors, along with regional and nationally recognized cancer organizations. The organization was co-founded by Dr. Jay Burton, medical director and founder of the Primary Care Cancer Survivor Program of Western New England.

Survivor Journeys also announced that the organization will benefit from the generosity of the S. Prestley and Helen Blake Fund at the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts, which has offered a $25,000 matching grant challenge. The S. Prestley and Helen Blake Fund will match all funds raised, up to $25,000, by Survivor Journeys by March 31.
