These are some of the many opportunities to make a difference:
- Care Ambassadors - Share your compassion with others by offering comfort items to patients and families in waiting areas.
- Courtesy Center - Good with directions? Assist visitors with information on Ann Arbor and surrounding areas.
- iPod and Tech Squad - Assist patients and families by teaching them to use iPod technology to improve their well-being and their experience at our center.
- New Patient Guide - Help ease the way. Assist newly diagnosed cancer patients as they navigate the health-care system.
- Musician Volunteer - Provide live music performances in the lobby or other waiting areas to promote a relaxing environment.
- Patient Advisory Board Member - board members serve between 2-3 years and are focused on helping the the cancer center deliver the highest standard of patient-family centered care.
- Patient Education Resource Center - Use computer skills to assist patients and visitors seeking cancer information.
- Special Events and Projects - As an individual or as part of a group, lend a hand with one of the numerous events or one-time projects throughout the year.
- Consider helping us in a different way. Make a fleece blanket for our Warm Fuzzies blanket project, which offers patients comfort during treatment.
If you are currently caring for someone with a serious illness, if you yourself are dealing with an illness, or if you have experienced the death of a loved one in the past year, this may not be the best time for you to commit to us. However, we hope that you will consider volunteering in the future.
