Welcome to Virtual Survivorship Day

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

Thank You Volunteers!

For more than 30 years, volunteers in the Duke Cancer Patient Support Program have often been 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 have helped in providing companionship and comfort, offering conversation, refreshments and a helping hand in locating available resources.

Volunteer roles had to be suspended during the pandemic, but we are happy to share we are reopening this opportunity in phases over the next few months. Visit the Duke University Hospital Volunteer site for more information. To apply, visit the Duke University Hospital Directory page and click on the “DUH Cancer Patient Support Program” link.
