Buddy System

Print

You may feel like you are the only person in your school or area who has polyps.

It can be helpful to meet other kids who are going through the same thing. Often, kids with the same condition can really understand what you are going through.

We have a "buddy system" that allows you or your family to be in touch with other kids.

Kids decide if they want to connect with another person in the same situation. Some kids want to talk on the telephone, others like to use e-mail or write letters. Some kids want to meet face-to-face. However you want to participate, let the buddy system help you.

Please contact the Registry Co-ordinator, at 416-586-4800 ext. 5112 or fgicr@mtsinai.on.ca if you want to meet a buddy or learn more about the buddy system.
