Volunteer Opportunities

HC-Hero-volunteer

The key to Hope & Cope’s success is the presence of 500 volunteers, 90% of whom have either had cancer themselves or cared for someone diagnosed with the disease or, in some cases, have been both a patient and a caregiver.

What these volunteers offer is the wisdom of the lived experience, which enables them to truly understand the concerns of patients and their families. Survivorship Day 2014 service with a smileSeeing volunteers who have survived cancer and are doing well is a source of inspiration and hope to many patients.

We are always looking for new volunteers. If you are caring, non-judgmental, a good listener and a team player, bilingual (English/French) or multi-lingual and are comfortable working with those who have cancer, we would like to hear from you.

Please contact us at 514 340-8255.
