GPS Mentor Connect Program

I am pleased to announce the launch of the Gaucher Personal Support (GPS) Mentor Connect Program!

Have you ever wanted to talk with someone else one-on-one about living with Gaucher disease? Would you like a chance to speak to such a person to hear about the experiences they have had? We have just the program for you!

The GPS Mentor Connect program allows you to connect one-on-one with the GPS Ambassadors who are living with Type 1 Gaucher disease and taking ELELYSO.

Meet the Ambassadors:

Boone B. - Entrepreneur
"I am thankful to be part of the GPS Mentor Connect program because I don’t want people to be without hope."
Kim P. - Working Mother
"By connecting with others you can learn from their experiences and get advice from someone who understands what you’re going through."
Kim R. - Non-profit Manager
"This program is a great resource for patients and others in the Gaucher community."
Adam M. - Acupuncturist
"I am really excited to share my insight and experience with others so that their journeys can be a little easier, and they know they are not alone."
Martin F. - Volunteer
"I want to help people not focus on the negatives of Gaucher, but instead, encourage them to take advantage of the resources available today."
Michele P. - Mother of 3
"I think it’s so important to have a personal connection to overcome feelings of isolation and to see positive ways that people are living with Gaucher disease."

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Call GPS at 1-855-ELELYSO (1-855-353-5976) to register to connect with a GPS Ambassador
  2. A GPS Mentor Connect staff member will set up a date and time for you and a GPS Ambassador to connect via phone
  3. Talk to your GPS Ambassador at the scheduled date and time
  4. Schedule follow up calls with your GPS Ambassador if you choose

Warm Regards,
Mariah Kelly
