Sir: April is Cancer Awareness Month, and with National Volunteer Week occurring April 6-12, the Canadian Cancer Society would like to thank each and every one of its many dedicated volunteers in Chatham-Kent for using their cancer-fighting powers to make a difference to people affected by cancer in our community.
Thanks to the support of our volunteers, we are able to fund life-saving cancer research and vital support services that help people living with cancer in Chatham-Kent.
Our volunteers are truly at the centre of it all and the list of what they accomplish is endless. Here’s just a sample of how they’re helping people in our community:
Volunteers drive patients to and from cancer-related appointments.
Peer support volunteers share their cancer experiences with others through one-to-one and group support programs.
Volunteers offer support to people living with cancer.
Volunteers provide leadership and administrative assistance to the local office.
Volunteers promote healthy living and cancer risk reduction by distributing our materials and educating others.
Volunteers advocate for healthy public policy.
Our volunteers have integrity, they are caring, they have courage and they are progressive. These values are at the core of everything they do.
Volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society is a rewarding and satisfying experience that helps benefit everyone in the community. We invite those interested in volunteering to call 519-352-3960 to find out how you can make a real difference in the fight against cancer.
Volunteers make the cancer journey a little brighter. Thank you!
Manager of the Chatham-Kent unit of the Canadian Cancer Society
