Welcome to Virtual Survivorship Day 2020 !

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

Volunteer with Us!

Volunteers are often the first friendly face you see when you enter a Duke Cancer Center location; greeting everyone with a smile, making sure patients and their loved ones get where they need to go.

They provide companionship and comfort, offering conversation, refreshments and a helping hand in locating available resources.

Our patients and their loved ones often reference our volunteers as part of what makes their care at Duke Cancer Institute such a positive and comforting experience.

Each day our volunteers give of themselves to help our patients in a variety of ways. No matter what your background is, we’re sure to have a role for you. And our volunteers frequently say they receive more than they give as well. If you have some free time each week and a desire to help others, we would love to talk to you!


View the video below to learn more about the Duke Cancer Patient Support Program, and how you can become involved. We are looking for all kinds of people from our community for a variety of roles, and we would love to put your heart, spirit and talents to good use in helping others!
