provide immediate, in-person services
Our volunteers regularly visit cancer patients in area hospitals and treatment centers to provide immediate, in-person services to patients and their caregivers currently undergoing medical treatment. Volunteers work in conjunction with medical staff to offer emotional support to patients, their families, and their caregivers.
“Ruth, a long-time CanCare Volunteer, was the first person I spoke with, even before the doctor. She sat with me listened to me cry and held my hand. She then shared with me that she overcame cancer –twice,” said Jennifer. Immediately, Jennifer’s outlook shifted. “Simply being in the presence of someone who had survived the disease I was facing calmed my anxiety. I was in a new mindset about my cancer diagnosis. It was pretty powerful.”
