  • 7 people are interested

All CanCare support volunteers are survivors of cancer or caregivers of cancer survivors. They are individuals who desire to support others by using what their own cancer experience has taught them.

Volunteers help patients talk about their cancer experience and share personal feelings that they might not otherwise be able to express. The purpose of the volunteer’s work is to strengthen the cancer survivor’s ability to cope with life after a cancer diagnosis. No medical advice is given.

This support is provided over the phone, email or text and volunteers maybe connected with clients outside of the Houston area.

Bilingual volunteers strongly encouraged to apply.

All prospective volunteers must attend volunteer training program.
