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.

Hope & Cope

Bernie Gurberg, owner of the Dollar Cinema, stopped by our Wellness Centre with free movie passes for our patients and a very generous donation of over $2,000 in change, donated by customers in lieu of tips. “When customers offer us tips, we tell them that we are collecting donations for Hope & Cope instead,” Bernie explained.

High fives and many thanks to Bernie, his staff, and the generous patrons of the Dollar Cinema!

Merci à Bernie et son équipe pour leur générosité!

Thanks to all who came out in support of Dorval, Sources and St-Henri Auto Parts' 11th annual walk-a-thon benefiting our very own cancer exercise program. The weather was superb,the food was delicious and even more importantly, we were surrounded by hope. Our patients, their caregivers, our staff and volunteers are forever grateful to Alex, Andre, Chris and Nick - your commitment to Hope & Cope is priceless. See you again next year!

Alex, Andre, Chris et Nick ont passé une bonne partie de l'été à soliciter leur vaste réseau de contacts, dont leur famille, leurs amis, clients et fournissuers.
