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

Thanks to the all the donors who came out on a chilly Monday evening to enjoy our exclusive screening of Love, Gilda.

Fortified with a huge box of snacks, the crowd was welcomed by Marlene and Joel King, Howard Stotland and Nancy Ditkofsky, who spoke about the importance of supporting Hope & Cope in its ongoing work of helping people from all walks of life cope with cancer.

Special guest Frema Routtenberg, a proud co-founder of Gilda's Club Montreal, spoke about the wonderful atmosphere the Club provided, noting that once it closed, its members were pleased to donate the proceeds of the sale of the house as well as art work and furniture to the Hope & Cope Wellness Centre.

The crowd was treated to an encore presentation of Monday Night Live, a video produced a few years ago by Hope & Cope, and everyone was riveted by the evening's feature presentation, Love Gilda.
