CanCare is a network of trained volunteers including cancer survivors, family members of cancer survivors and medical professionals who provide emotional support, information and resources to others facing cancer. All services are free of charge. CanCare trains groups of volunteers up to five times a year in Texas, Georgia and Colorado. The training course is broken up over three days and is designed to prepare volunteers to help others cope with the physical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual aspects of their cancer experience. Following this training, volunteers may attend continuing education and support opportunities to learn more about cancer and the needs of cancer patients and their families.
