Be a friendly face and a helping hand!

Our patients, caregivers and staff need you! Help us live out our promise to share in our patients’ journeys of healing and hope.

The UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center is dedicated to providing excellence in volunteer service and support to patients, families, faculty, staff and community partners with care, integrity and compassion. Through our committed and caring volunteer team, we provide innovative, effective volunteer support services dedicated to improving the quality of life of cancer patients.

Volunteers come to UAB’s Comprehensive Cancer Center for many reasons. Some are cancer survivors who wish to offer the gift of hope and inspiration to others. Some are students who are hoping to gain valuable patient contact experience for their future clinical careers. Others are simply interested in giving back to the community and helping where needed. Your help is greatly appreciated!

How can I help?

Volunteer opportunities cover the spectrum from direct patient contact to assisting our busy staff with administrative duties, to helping us with special events, fundraisers and holiday giving.  If you want to make a difference, to touch a life, to learn while helping others, we can find the right place for you.
