Summary
The research for the thesis examined cancer survivors' reasons for providing peer support to cancer patients, and the impact of this type of helping behaviour has on cancer survivors' quality of life. Results revealed six prominent reasons for providing peer support, and that helping others did not increase survivors' already high quality of life. The portfolio presents the content, facilitator perceptions, participant evaluations and outcomes of four group programs which targeted specific groups of participants
