You Can Help by Volunteering

There are over 10 treatment facilities here in Las Vegas, we are actively serving 3 of them and we are currently seeking volunteers for all of them.

Since our efforts are customized to each treatment facility and each community it is vital to have local clinic specific volunteers in our network.

They can advise the foundation as to needs within that community and the Foundation can fashion what programs are within capacity to provide.

Some ways you can help.

* call us today to become a volunteer in your communities clinic

* ADOPT A CANCER CLINIC, become our eyes and ears to understand what is needed in your community treatment center

* donate pre packaged, single serving snacks and beverages please send to address on the contact page and we will distribute ask local retailers for donations for the small items like snacks and pillows call us for a 501C form

* time, if you have time to donate we can use it! Please call or email to discuss ways to get involved from admin to in clinic representatives, mailings and awareness efforts

* money, if you would like to make a contribution in memory, honor or support of a loved one or clinic we will put your funds to immediate responsible use

Our in clinic volunteers must have reliable transportation, auto insurance and due to HIPPA laws and medical regulations, be willing to pass a background check where necessary.
