Become a Volunteer.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the American Cancer Society! As a volunteer you can honor a survivor or a loved one lost to cancer, and help save lives of people both in the Capital Region and around the world. It only takes a little time to do a lot of good.

We have different event related volunteer roles from planning committees to night of volunteers, along with many other volunteer opportunities with the American Cancer Society. Contact us today to find out how rewarding volunteering is!

“‪Everyone has a gift. Whether you are a singe “‪Everyone has a gift. Whether you are a singer, a chef, a musician, an artist, an engineer, a philosopher, a writer...we can ALL use what we have, right where we are, to leave this world better than we found it. Even in the midst of pandemonium. Let’s set a new paradigm. History will record, and generations from now they will know that we were here, and they will see how we lived. How we searched for the best thoughts we could find. How we came out on the other side. As a breast surgical oncologist, I among those who are #StillHereForYou because‬ ‪#CancerDoesntQuarantine.”
