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 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.
