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.

Volunteer Management Council Charter

In response to an in-depth survey of Hope & Cope volunteers and subsequent consultations, in the fall of 2018, Hope & Cope introduced a new management structure called the Volunteer Management Council. Composed of volunteers representing a wide variety of areas within Hope & Cope as well as staff members, the Council will provide leadership and decision-making on volunteer-related issues and will report directly to the Board.

Hope & Cope

Bravo, Annik!

CIUSSS Centre-Ouest Montréal / CIUSSS West-Central Montreal
L’annonce d’un cancer est une épreuve bouleversante. La réaction à ce diagnostic varie d’une personne à l’autre. Il arrive que la personne atteinte ressentira de l’anxiété au moment du diagnostic, lors de l’attente de résultats médicaux ou au début des traitements. Mais il est possible d’agir sur cette anxiété.

Pour nous en dire davantage, Carl Thériault accueille Annik Allée qui a survécu à deux cancers. Celle-ci est maintenant bénévole au Centre de bien-être de l’Espoir, c’est la vie (Hope & Cope) où elle donne des ateliers de méditation, de visualisation et de gestion du stress.

Hope & Cope

Way to go, Mona! We are proud to have you as a Hope & Cope volunteer.

CIUSSS Centre-Ouest Montréal / CIUSSS West-Central Montreal
To learn that one has cancer is a shocking ordeal. The reaction to this diagnosis varies from person to person. Sometimes one will feel anxiety at the time of diagnosis, another while waiting for medical results or at the beginning of treatment. Despite this stressful feeling, it is possible to act upon it.

To tell us more, Barry Morgan welcomes Mona Wizenberg, who survived two cancers. She is now a volunteer at the Hope & Cope wellness centre, where she provides peer advice.

Flashback Friday

Marjorie Bronfman, philanthropist and great friend to our Founder, Sheila Kussner, was a firm believer in our cause and a generous supporter of Hope & Cope for three decades. They are pictured here at one of our Fashion Fantasy fundraisers in 1998.

Vendredi, on se rappelle…

Marjorie Bronfman, philanthrope et grande amie de notre fondatrice, Sheila Kussner, croyait fermement en notre cause et a généreusement soutenu L’espoir, c’est la vie pendant trois décennies. Elles sont photographiées ici en 1998, lors d'une collecte de fonds de Fashion Fantasy organisée par L’espoir, c’est la vie.
