During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Want to start making a difference in someone else's life? Become a Patient Support Volunteer for the Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation. Our Volunteers brighten up a cancer patient’s day by providing non-medical support to them while they are undergoing treatment. In the infusion area, volunteers offer a snack or beverage to a patient or their guest, hand out warm blankets, share reading material, talk and listen, wipe down the infusion chairs and help to keep the area tidy.
Ideal candidates have extremely flexible hours to be able to fill in diverse days or shifts, may be a retiree, cancer survivor or a caregiver of someone with cancer. We would also consider a college student with an interest in oncology, nursing or medicine. Reservist volunteers help to fill in when regular status volunteers are out on medical leave or vacation. The reservist volunteer is scheduled with at least two weeks of anticipation and will likely fill at least one shift a week, time commitment is 3 hours per week for at least six months.
