Want to start making a difference in someone else's life? Become a volunteer for the Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation Patient Support Volunteer program. Give non-medical support to patients undergoing treatment for cancer, by offering a warm blanket, snack or beverage to a patient or their guest, share a magazine or other reading material, or initiate light conversation.

An ideal candidate might be a cancer survivor or a previous caregiver for someone with cancer. We would also consider a high school student or college intern for community hours programs (must be 17). Shift opportunities are 9 am-12:00 pm and 1:00 pm-4 pm, Monday through Friday; however a minimum of 3 hours/week could be done on separate days.
