Pitched by Cole Jackson
Imagine every child diagnosed with an incurable medical condition goes on to live a full, meaningful life undefined by disease. At MedMentor, we work with parents, volunteers, and others in the community to bring this vision to reality. Since the beginning of 2019, we have recruited dozens of mentors, adults successfully managing a chronic illness, to help cultivate healthy and health-seeking behaviors in youth newly diagnosed with the same medical condition. Mentors have also provided resources and disease management support that have enabled their mentees to live healthier lives and avoid unhealthy behaviors!
Congratulations on winning a Fast Pitch 2020 Merit Award!
