I've been volunteering with the American Cancer Society for a few months now and am really impressed with the organization and it's goals. Helping survivors is their focus and working with the Quality of Life managers is a pleasure. The American Cancer Society is an inspiring group to be involved with!

I think the American Cancer Society is the most supportive and caring organization in existence in the United States today. ACS offers so much in the way of information, fund raising and free services to make not only the afflicted but also the families be comforted. In the short time I've been with Chemo patients and their loved ones, they (frequently)inform me that they already have a myriad of information and education. I believe that if someone feels the organization is not supportive of their needs...it is because the diagnosis of Cancer is debilitating in itself and very scary. People need to be reassured that their needs will be met and they need to feel "safe", taken care of and supported in all aspects of their illness and their lives. .

I have contacted the American Cancer Society more than once to volunteer at Southern Hills, but have not had any luck getting started. What must I do to start? The Southern Hills person never called me back.
