"Many of our patients' families want to come back as volunteers to help make this as good of an experience for others as it was for their loved ones."
—Susan Kenney, RN, OCN
What makes PeaceHealth Southwest's Regional Cancer Center exceptional? Our volunteers!
Volunteers at the Cancer Center are an important part of our healthcare team. Volunteers provide support to patients and their families, and they work with our staff to provide cancer education and preventative programs in the community.
Volunteering is not just about donating time or money. Many volunteers donate their talents; for example, chemo caps or quilts are gratefully received.
The Cancer Center's volunteer coordinator, Sherilyn Brown, helps people meet their personal needs in finding the right opportunities. Volunteers range in age from 18 to 80s or older. Some are peer volunteers, who have had cancer themselves. They can share not only their medical experience, but also their experience of hope and survivorship.
