Help wanted: giving hope, sharing hope.

For every loss, there is victory, for every sadness, there is joy and when you think you've lost everything, there is hope.

Mention Cancer Hope Network volunteers, and most people think of our Support Volunteers mentoring cancer patients and their families. Today, we’re in search of another type of volunteer – someone to help us spread the word about the support and care offered through CHN.

More than 1.6 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in 2015. From conferences and support groups to doctors and nurse navigators or support groups, we do our best to let people know that they are a phone call away from talking to a cancer survivor. But we can’t do it alone.

You know your community best – is there a church group looking for a volunteer speaker? Community center bulletin board that could display an informational poster? Doctor’s office where brochures would be helpful? Online support community that should be linked to cancerhopenetwork.org? You know them all – and we need your help reaching out to them.

Please consider sharing hope by doing one (or more!) of the following:

  • Write a blog – Whether you’re reading a story or finding a recipe the Hope is Here blog is a great place to hear from Cancer Hope Network volunteers and others. Share your story. Highlight a friend who has gone above and beyond the call of duty. Discuss important issues in oncology. https://www.pinterest.com/hopenet/
