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 or contact Sharon Kaplan at or call our office 607-277-0960.
