Volunteer with Lymphoma Canada

Lymphoma Canada is always seeking volunteers to help us achieve our mission to empower lymphoma patients and the lymphoma community, through education, support and research.

Why Volunteer with Lymphoma Canada?

As an organization, Lymphoma Canada strives to ensure that each volunteer feels a sense of satisfaction through the giving of their time and energy; that they have a sense of ownership for their contributions, are provided with opportunities to achieve results and feel a sense of accomplishment in return.

We recognizes the wealth of knowledge, expertise and skills that volunteers bring to the organization.  Volunteers provide practical support through the day to day operations of the organization, they find creative methods for building community awareness and raising funds to sustain the goals of Lymphoma Canada, they offer peer to peer support and education to individuals with lymphoma and their supporters, they act as advisors and offer governance for the operations and mission.  We are grateful for the contributions that volunteers provide to the organization and they strive to ensure that each volunteer is recognized as valuable and necessary in aiding to achieve our mission.

We believe that the collective use of volunteers together with essential staff enables them to use their donors’ resources responsibly allocating funds to haematology/oncology fellowships, medical research, education and support for individuals with lymphoma and their supporters, advocacy for the best treatment and care for lymphoma patients and equal access to the best treatments for lymphoma.
