A Comprehensive Cancer Center Designated by the National Cancer Institute


Volunteering is a great way to develop new skills, meet new people, and join an enthusiastic team. It is also an impressive item to add to your resume.

Volunteers are an important part of the UCCCC community. There are a number of ways to help:

Help on the Day of an event. The UCCCC's Office of Community Engagement and Cancer Disparities (OCECD) hosts a variety of events, forums, and conferences. Planning and organizing an event can be a challenging but rewarding experience, and there are many ways to get involved. Contact OCECD Assistant Director Fornessa Randal at frandal@bsd.uchicago.edu for more information.

Cancer patients and survivors can attend Support Group Sessions and network with other individuals who have been touched by cancer.

Join the Forefront Stitchers group meets once a week to knit and crochet chemo caps and healing shawls for patients in the Cancer Resource Center.

The power of our experiences lies in our willingness to share them. A single story can inspire, teach, and provide hope for others. Whether it's a story of survivorship or information on how to manage a cancer-related problem, the power of someone's experience can have a tremendous impact.

Share your cancer story by contacting the UCCCC communications team at feedback@bsd.uchicago.edu. Your story may be featured in an upcoming publication.
