Volunteer to Save Lives

As an American Cancer Society volunteer, you can honor a survivor or a loved one lost to cancer, help save the lives of people in your local community, and around the world. 

At this time, we are very concerned about COVID-19. The health and safety of our volunteers, patients, and staff always come first. We haven’t stopped answering our 24/7 helpline to give our patients the important information and available resources they need. There is a continued need for volunteers in critical roles, but the rapidly changing conditions may mean some delayed start dates. 

Please help us by signing up to volunteer so when programs resume we are ready and available to assist cancer patients and their families. Because cancer doesn’t stop. So neither will we.

Looking to fundraise for the American Cancer Society? You can use your community connections and passion for ending cancer to help fund research, patient programs, and education. Fundraise with Relay for Life, our signature fundraiser to attack cancer, or Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, our community fundraiser to end breast cancer.
