A cancer diagnosis can be one of the most devastating things to happen to someone. Cancer does not care where you live, how much money you make, who you love, or the color of your skin…it is indiscriminate!
When clients walk into or call our office, they are greeted with a smile, empathy and hope by our wonderful volunteers. These volunteers also assist the CRC staff with various projects critical to the smooth running of our agency.
Some of our volunteers are a daily comforting presence at Cayuga Medical Center, in both Radiation Oncology and Chemotherapy Infusion, offering a warm blanket, a snack, or just an ear to listen. They provide support and information to cancer patients and their caregivers.
We would love to have you join our amazingly dedicated team!
Our needs require commitment to a 3-4 hour shift on a weekday during office hours. Bus service is available to both the CRC office as well as Cayuga Medical Center.
If you’d like to help make a difference, please visit www.crcfl.net or contact Sharon Kaplan at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office 607-277-0960.

Hi! My name is Carla Baudrons, I’m one of the newbies here at CRC, and one of the many things I get to do is serve folks in our boutique. The Emily Virkler Boutique is named for a former client of ours who sadly passed from brain cancer in 2017. Because of her family’s generous funding and your continued support, we’re able to provide people experiencing cancer with free items such as wigs, hats and scarves of all kinds, mastectomy products like surgical bras, breast prostheses, and mastectomy bras, and more.
