Volunteer

We have a big mission ahead of us and can use all hands on deck. Give the gift of inspiration for just a bit of time.

Events & Activities

Our Connect Program provides events and activities for our clients and their families. From Connect Nights, to Camps, and many seasonal activities in between. We are always in need of volunteers to help us facilitate these memorable activities!

Texas
Oncology

The Texas Oncology Fort Worth Cancer Center needs volunteers to greet patients and help them find which floor their appointment is on. Volunteers are also needed in the Infusion Room to pass out blankets, water, snacks, and provide companionship.

P.A.L.
Program

Join a mentorship program and be paired with a client to be a Partner, Advocate, and Lifeline during their cancer journey. You can help ease the anxieties of those impacted by cancer by providing information, inviting them to events, speaking of your experiences, and helping them navigate their disease.

Office

Volunteers are needed for general office duties such as filing, organization, phone calls, or reception coverage. No special skills are required; training is minimal and can occur on the day of help.
All volunteers must be:
  • 18 years old unless accompanied by a legal guardian or if special permission is given by the Volunteer Coordinator.
  • Willing to interact with families and other volunteers.
  • Able to work as a dedicated team member.

Tell us about yourself.

I am Nancy Love, born, raised, and lived in Fort Worth, Texas, and a retired FWISD elementary math teacher for 30+ years.

What brought you to Cancer Care as a volunteer?

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in December 2013 and was overwhelmed by the word alone – CANCER. I was having a hard time understanding and dealing with the word cancer and everything it means. I came to talk with the counselor, Annie, for several sessions. She calmed me, understood what I was going through, and listened to me. After I retired from teaching, I knew I wanted to volunteer my time. I picked Cancer Care Services because they helped me while going through cancer, and I wanted to give back to the cancer community.

What is your favorite thing about volunteering with Cancer Care?

My favorite thing about volunteering at Cancer Care is being able to help cancer patients and their families. I help by answering the phones and volunteering at Family Connect Nights, AYA Camp, Thanksgiving, and Christmas events.

What has been one of your most memorable moments volunteering with Cancer Care?

The first one was answering the phone one day, listening to a 25-year-old man cry on the phone because he was just diagnosed with a brain tumor. He didn’t know where to turn to get help. His doctor wasn’t helping him navigate through the medical system. A social worker at Cancer Care helped him understand the process and gave the young man various resources to look into for help. The second memorable moment was helping at the Christmas food and toy drive-thru for cancer families in need. Helping out and seeing the faces of the families so thankful for receiving gifts and food for the holidays brought tears to my eyes.

How has your experience with cancer impacted your volunteering?

Having been through the cancer system, I’m empathetic to those who have been diagnosed with cancer. I’m able to listen to that person and hear what they are going through. We all go through cancer experiences differently, but the one thing we all have in common is the ‘C’ word.

What would you say to someone who is thinking about volunteering with Cancer Care?

Come on and volunteer for Cancer Care. There are so many various opportunities that you can get involved with. From answering phone calls, helping with holiday events, family events, to packing and getting materials organized for an event. Plus, the best part is meeting AMAZING people along the way.

– Nancy Love, Cancer Survivor and Volunteer since 2016
