Pancreatic Cancer Survivor Volunteer

The CanCare team is looking for pancreatic cancer volunteers wanting to offer hope and strength to someone facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis. If you have cared for someone receiving cancer treatment or you’re a pancreatic cancer survivor, you are in a unique position to help someone else experiencing the same trial. Whatever brings you to CanCare, our team happily welcomes you into our community of survivors!

CanCare’s mission is to ensure that anyone facing pancreatic cancer has a survivor by their side. We need you, and your unique experience as a pancreatic cancer survivor or pancreatic cancer caregiver, to offer hope and support to someone enduring similar challenges and emotions that a Pancreatic cancer diagnosis creates.

One-on-One Pancreatic Cancer Volunteers

Our pancreatic cancer survivor and caregiver volunteers engage in one-on-one virtual support with pancreatic cancer patients and their caregivers. Our volunteers are matched with clients based on cancer type, treatment method, life stage, age, and gender. CanCare volunteers have the unique ability to empathize with and relate to clients currently living with a pancreatic cancer diagnosis because they are pancreatic cancer survivors themselves. This creates a bond and gives clients a safe place to discuss personal feelings and pancreatic cancer experiences that are hard to express.

Pancreatic Cancer Volunteer Opportunities

  • Share your pancreatic cancer experience with someone who has recently been diagnosed—everyone’s cancer journey is different, but your story can provide valuable insight about what to expect.
  • Volunteer your first hand knowledge to help others with pancreatic cancer navigate the different aspects of life with cancer.
  • Help by driving a fellow cancer survivor to their doctor appointments and back home again.
  • Run errands for someone facing pancreatic cancer, like going grocery shopping, picking up meals, or providing pet care.
