SUPPORT CANADIANS LIVING WITH CANCER
Volunteering with the Society is a great opportunity for you to make a positive impact in your community, be part of a team, share your experience, learn new skills and develop lasting friendships. Volunteers are critical to our accomplishments and we wouldn’t be able to support, inform and empower those touched by cancer without you.
When you join our nationwide team, you have the combined strength of volunteers from across the country standing behind you to help you make a difference in someone’s life.
Research has shown that volunteering not only helps you live longer, but it makes you healthier too!
Here are some quotes from Society volunteers about their experiences and why they volunteer with the Canadian Cancer Society:
“My work as a youth volunteer with the Canadian Cancer Society is really being recognized and appreciated.” Julia
“I wanted to show my gratitude towards the charity that probably kept my grandmother alive, alongside lots of other cancer survivors.” Karen
There are as many reasons why people volunteer as there are ways you can get involved. Apply today to get started.
Clinical trial discovery improves quality of life
A clinical trial led by the Society’s NCIC Clinical Trials group found that men with prostate cancer who are treated with intermittent courses of hormone therapy live as long as those receiving continuous therapy.
