Cancer Center

Cancer Resource Center Volunteers provide patients, families and caregivers with the resources they need to make informed decisions. They are responsible for assisting with referrals and providing information regarding American Cancer Society programs.

Volunteers in the ER assist staff by ensuring that patients and visitors are made comfortable during their stay. Tasks include providing blankets, snacks and drinks, magazines, ice packs, and pillows. Volunteers may also help by stocking supplies, and greeting patients on arrival.
