Help a Family

Many of the critical services MCC provides children and families fighting childhood cancer are provided by a dedicated group of volunteers. We simply couldn’t offer the many services we do if it weren’t for these amazing people.

Our families have a broad range of needs and may require a long-term commitment from a volunteer. MCC volunteers need to be flexible and dedicated. If you or someone you know would like to help a family, please fill out one of our volunteer application forms.

Volunteer Categories

General Volunteer

MCC is a small organization and is therefore highly dependent on the work of volunteers. We have no full-time staff. General volunteers may be assigned a variety of tasks to support the children and families we serve. A volunteer may be asked to help with meal planning, for instance, or to drive a family to a doctor’s appointment. MCC is also looking for volunteers to help market our services, assist in planning events, and/or serve on committees. We do our best to match tasks with the skills or experience of its volunteers.

The time commitment for this category of volunteer varies depending upon the assigned task and the individual needs of a family.

Medical Research Volunteer

Medical research volunteers are a unique category of volunteer. Please contact our Program Director, Avital Gaziel-Sovran, via email: avital@mychildscancer.org
