  • Are you passionate about spreading awareness for a meaningful cause?
  • Are you interested in building your leadership skills?

If this is you - we have an exciting volunteer opportunity! The Miami Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is looking to fill our Affiliate Chair position.

In this role, you will oversee a team of volunteer leaders and help guide them to success. You will work together to identify and execute goals around PanCAN's three major initiatives: PanCAN PurpleStride (fundraising), Action Week (advocacy), and Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month (community outreach).You will also recruit volunteers for the Miami Affiliate. The ideal volunteer for this role has a passion for leadership and strong organizational skills! Training will be provided.

PanCAN volunteers raise funds and awareness year-round to support research and clinical initiatives, patient services, advocacy, and community engagement work. Our volunteers support us in a number of capacities, including social media, public awareness campaigns, fundraising, event planning, and government advocacy.

We need you because pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers; the five-year survival rate is only 11%. It is currently the third leading cause of all cancer-related death in the US. We need people like you to help us create a world where all patients with pancreatic cancer will thrive.

If you are interested in expanding your skills, building meaningful relationships, and truly making a difference in this fight, please respond! We'd love to have you join our vibrant volunteer community.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to take bold action to improve the lives of everyone impacted by pancreatic cancer by advancing scientific research, building community, sharing knowledge and advocating for patients.

Description

PanCAN was the first organization dedicated to fighting pancreatic cancer in a comprehensive way, and for more than two decades, we’ve grown a nationwide movement tackling the disease from all angles.

  • Research: We fund transformative research - everything from early detection to innovative new treatment approaches.
  • Patient Services: We provide information about treatment options, diet and nutrition, support resources and more, and we can answer all your questions along the way.
  • Advocacy: We work with thousands of grassroots advocates to urge Congress to increase federal research funding for pancreatic cancer, and we get results.
  • Community: Be part of our movement! You can volunteer locally, participate in a PurpleStride community event or host your own fundraiser.
