About Our Volunteers

Volunteers are the lifeline of our non-profit organization.  We count on our volunteers to help run the Foundation and promote and participate in exciting fundraising events.  Our volunteers range from former grant recipients to cancer treatment supporters and survivors, and the general community.  We offer fulfilling volunteer opportunities ranging from fundraising event coordination to database management.

Role of a Volunteer

Our volunteers mean everything to us because we are a volunteer organization. Many people join our mission because they can relate to the devastating effects of cancer.  Through their efforts, our volunteers help communicate our “Pay It Forward” philosophy – which says, if you appreciate the help you’ve received, pass on the gift of helping someone else.  It’s a simple principle that changes lives.  Be a life changer. --- Fara Palumbo, Past Board Member

Helping others understand what we do and why we do it goes hand-in-hand with our mission to serve. That’s why our face to the world should always be sunny and our message easy to interpret.  It’s hard to have a voice today without a great website – often the first stop for inquiring minds.  As we grow, our web needs sprucing and pruning and cross pollination to spread the seeds of hope to our community.  --- Kelly Lee, Board Member

We do so many wonderful things for so many deserving people and we capture this dedication within our events, on our website, and in our planning meetings. Without our supportive volunteers we are nothing.  Looking back through our photo journals we are reminded of what it’s all about, helping one patient at a time. A picture is worth a thousand words. --- Robin Foster, PIF Event Chairman

Fundraisers and awareness events are our lifeblood.  Much of our financial support comes from people who’ve joined our events and embrace our mission.  We are committed to educating the public and hosting events that are not only informative, but fun and engaging.  We want people to remember us and become a part of the important work we do. --- Jill Wolford, Founder

Non-profits love people who love numbers and are great with details. Keeping our databases up to date with easy to access information is critical to Foundation operations.  We use our databases to keep up with our donors and sponsors, to manage day-to-day details and archive important data.   --- Adel Fahmy, Treasurer

Developing good, crisp content is essential to our communications strategy.  When people read about us, we want them to have an immediate sense of who we are.  We want our brand essence to come through and our mission to be apparent in all of our communications.  We’ve got something important to say.  --- Rayma Alexander, Volunteer
