A calming touch, a kind word, a gentle smile—Cancer Center volunteers offer these comforts in a way no one else can. And the compassion and understanding our volunteers provide patients and families is invaluable. The Cancer Center is fortunate to have many exceptional people who so freely give of their time and talents to help our patients every day, and in so many ways.
Following are snapshots where some of our volunteers explain what motivates them to serve as Cancer Center volunteers…
“Everyone is fighting a battle of some sort. It’s important to look around and realize that others may be struggling with something and show them kindness.”
“Everybody at the Cancer Center has a positive attitude, and they are dealing with a lot. I enjoy working with others, meeting new people and forming new friendships.”
“I volunteer because it’s my special way of giving back to the Cancer Center for everything they did for my dad and my family while he went through treatment.”
