"The spring is back in my step. The sun is brighter. The flowers are prettier. These folks have given me a great reason to get out of bed in the morning."

Volunteer Stories

Volunteers Give Out Hand-Made Blankets to Patients

"The blankets mean more to both the ladies I have given one to than a covering for warmth."
            - Susan, Regarding Cancer volunteer

“My Friday mornings [volunteering] are always a profound experience. I try to be encouraging and just talk to people about how they’re feeling.  I  remind everyone that they only need three things to be happy; someone to love, something to do, and something to look forward to. I always leave feeling great about how lucky I am, and I always enjoy the diversity of the people in the room.

 

It’s so much like cycling really. You never know with whom you’re sitting or riding next to, and everyone in treatment or on a ride is the same. No matter who they are or what they do, everyone has the same goal.

 

To those who are thinking about becoming a volunteer, I will say one thing to you, GO FOR IT.”

- Bob Munzer, Regarding Cancer volunteer

"As a volunteer, my responsibilities center around creating a safe and comforting environment by welcoming patients with blankets and snacks and providing company throughout their stay.
 
The simple act of letting patients know that there is someone there for them during a difficult time is incredibly powerful and creates an environment much more conducive to healing."
