Moffitt volunteers are all ages and from all walks of life. Many have been touched in some way by cancer and have joined our team to simply “give back” or to help make a difference in the lives of others. One of the many benefits of volunteering at Moffitt is the satisfaction of knowing that you will be contributing to something very important to the whole community and world! No matter the area you serve in as a volunteer, you are contributing to the Moffitt Mission “to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer”. Moffitt Cancer Center values its volunteers and the compassionate and conscientious service they provide for patients, visitors and staff. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work beside our faculty, staff and team members to ensure our patients receive the best of care.
