Become a CanCare Volunteer

Become a CanCare Volunteer!

Are you a cancer survivor with a heart to help someone else find hope and strength as they face treatment? Have you cared for a friend or loved one while they received cancer treatment? Whatever brings you to CanCare, we want to welcome you into our community of survivors!

Our mission at CanCare is to ensure that anyone facing cancer has a survivor by their side. We need you – and your unique voice as a cancer survivor or cancer caregiver – to bring hope and support to someone else who may be experiencing the challenges and the emotions that accompany a cancer diagnosis. 

One on One Support Volunteers

CanCare survivor and caregiver volunteers engage in personal one-on-one virtual support with cancer patients and their caregivers. Volunteers are matched with clients by cancer type, treatment method, life stage, age, and gender. As survivors themselves, CanCare volunteers have the unique ability to relate to and empathize with clients currently undergoing their diagnosis. This bond gives clients an outlet to discuss their personal feelings and cancer experiences that might otherwise be hard to express.
