Volunteering

Volunteers come to the OSUCCC – James for many reasons. Some are cancer survivors who wish to offer the gift of hope and inspiration to others. Some are simply interested in giving back to the community and helping where needed. Each one of our volunteers is essential to the exceptional care we provide to our patients and the support we give our patients, caregivers and families.

With the recent opening of the new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, the need for additional dedicated and compassionate volunteers is even greater. We are looking for individuals who are able to give their time, talents and energy to help us reach our goal of “creating a cancer-free world one person, one discovery at a time.”
