Cancer Bridges provides a warm and welcoming environment for everyone who has been impacted by cancer. This includes those with a cancer diagnosis, those who have a loved one with cancer, or have experienced the loss of a loved one due to cancer. All our programs and activities are 100% free.

We are currently looking for volunteers with artistic skills and interests to lead classes on art, music, writing, etc. to our members. Creative expression courses are popular amongst our members, who enjoy the opportunity to make art in a supportive environment. Amateurs are welcome, but we do ask that our creative expression volunteers are skilled enough to teach their chosen medium.

Classes will take place in person at our building in the Strip District. We prefer classes take place Tuesday through Thursday, but we can be flexible with the times. Classes can be scheduled weekly, biweekly, or monthly.

Parking is available, and we are located near many bus stops.
