3 people are interested
The American Cancer Society Cancer Resource Center at Salem Health needs your help for program services!
The American Cancer Society partners with local oncology and community centers to provide Cancer Resource Centers. Cancer patients, their families and caregivers can receive information, learn about American Cancer Society programs and services, and receive free gift items including wigs, scarves, & hats. All centers are staffed by dedicated American Cancer Society volunteers. Visitors to the Cancer Resource Centers may also obtain information about prevention and detection, treatment guidelines, and support groups.
If you like one-on-one and small group interaction, are a cancer survivor, have been a caregiver, or have had a family member or friend diagnosed with cancer, you will appreciate the experience of being a cancer resource center volunteer. As a trained volunteer at a cancer resource center you would interact with cancer patients and caregivers and be a conduit to information about cancer types, treatments, cancer screenings, and support services provided by the American Cancer Society and other organizations.
Volunteers must be prepared to provide compassionate assistance to cancer patients, family members and friends.
We'll work with your schedule.
