Become a Volunteer

To become a CanCare volunteer, you must be a cancer survivor who has been finished with treatments for at least six months, or the caregiver of a cancer survivor. Cancer patients are matched with a volunteer who has survived the same or similar type of cancer to receive one-on-one positive encouragement and Hope from someone who understands first hand what they are going through. Opportunities are also available for volunteers to make hospital visits to cancer patients and their families.

Trainings are currently offered in Houston, Atlanta and Colorado Springs.
