Are you a social worker looking for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of persons touched by cancer? The American Cancer Society HopeClub is looking for social workers interested in volunteering to lead a support group of survivors, one for friends and families, and for children. Cancer is a devastating disease and these groups make possible the peer support process and provide the opportunity to develop healthy coping skills and strategies for self-advocacy.
