The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
The role of the Patient and Family Outreach Volunteer (PFO) is to provide welcome phone calls to new patients and families who have contacted The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and let them know about our local resources and patient/family programs. These patients and families will have already spoken with information specialist in our National office about disease education and nation resources.
The role of the PFO is to be the first LLS representative with whom a cancer patient or their family member speaks. You will be an important part of their cancer journey and provide much needed support and resources.
