The American Cancer Society is seeking cancer survivors and caregivers who would like to be trained as volunteers to work with cancer patients and their families.
Because of their personal experiences with cancer, survivors and caregivers are able to provide valuable one-on-one emotional support and non-medical information to patients who are trying to deal with the challenges accompanying a cancer diagnosis.
Volunteer training is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 18, at Jerstad Center. For more information about becoming an American Cancer Society volunteer, call Lisa Hjermstad at 605.323.3550.
