Interested in becoming a Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center volunteer?
Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center volunteers vary in age and background: high school students fulfilling service requirements, cancer survivors simply wanting to “give back” to the community, and employed and retired adults looking to help make a difference in the lives of others.
One of the many benefits of volunteering at the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center is the satisfaction of knowing that you will be contributing to a major component of our mission: to improve the quality of life for those with cancer through compassionate care. The Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center values its volunteers and the kindhearted and conscientious service they provide for patients, visitors and staff. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work beside our clinicians, nurses, staff and volunteer team members to ensure our patients receive the best of care.
The Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center Volunteer Program is part of Volunteer Services at the UC Irvine Medical Center. Please click on the link below for additional information, or contact the Manager of Volunteer Services for the UC Irvine Medical Center at 714.456.6742.
In addition to the many volunteer services available through the UC Irvine Medical Center, the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center offers a program that pairs newly diagnosed individuals and those who are experiencing stress related to their diagnosis with other cancer patients of similar age, gender, and diagnosis. Each “buddy” is trained to provide support for patients with this complex disease. If you would like to be a “buddy”, please call 714.456.3989.Volunteer Details
