Whether you are returning a kindness shown to you while you were a patient at The Zangmeister Cancer Center or have a desire to donate your time and talents in supporting the cancer community, here are some ways to give back to others receiving treatment at The Zangmeister Cancer Center:
Infusion Suite Volunteer
Infusion suite volunteers help to pass out snacks, blankets, chemo caps and magazines to patients and provide a caring heart and listening ear.
Pet Therapy Volunteer
Animal-assisted therapy is recognized as a supportive modality for treatment that is being increasingly incorporated with therapy for cancer patients to help reduce stress, alleviate feelings of loneliness and depression, provide distraction from pain and treatment and create a safe and accepting environment. All teams must be certified and registered with an accredited animal-assisted therapy organization. Visits are done at the center.
Donations of hats, shawls, scarves or blankets
If you are a creative person and have a special talent such as knitting or crocheting, your donation of hats, shawls, scarves and blankets can warm the hearts of those receiving treatment in our infusion suite.
