Become a Volunteer
Friends of the Cancer Center for Kids
Friends of the Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop-University Hospital is a volunteer organization that relies on people like you to help create a place of healing and hope for our patients. At the Cancer Center for Kids we firmly believe that people are the key to the cure. We are in need of people who can volunteer to be part of our team. We are looking for anyone who has the desire to see a cure for cancer and is passionate about ridding the world of this deadly disease. All of our volunteers have one thing in common, the desire to make a difference.
The Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop University Hospital provides a wonderful variety of volunteer opportunities to fit many interests. These opportunities include: fundraising events, office support and other volunteer positions.
Throughout the year the Cancer Center for Kids hosts many fundraising events to support our Psychosocial Program which emphasizes a team approach and offers professional, compassionate expertise of our team’s psychologist, social worker, child life specialist, horticultural specialist and music therapist. With this generous support, we are able to offer consultations, referrals to community resources, and individual and family psychotherapy. Our team also offers a variety of support groups and education programs for parents and siblings as well as daily child-life programs based on developmentally age-appropriate therapeutic play and art therapy for both inpatients and outpatients.
