It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.  - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Been There" Volunteers
A special group comprised of cancer survivors who are available to provide emotional and practical support for other cancer patients. Volunteers are screened and matched with patients who request to speak to a survivor. Open to any cancer survivor. Background checks and special training is required.

Clinic Volunteers
Through our partnership with Highlands Oncology Group, we staff their clinics with volunteer support. Roles are available in the chemotherapy suites, radiation clinics, imaging department and other areas. Tasks involve administrative, patient and clinic staff support. Volunteers must have daytime availability and be at least 18 years of age. Background checks and special training is required.

Special Event Committees
Hope Cancer Resources has several special events each year to help spread the word about what we do and raise funds to support our programs. Currently we have the Bill Fleeman Gentleman of Distinction Fashion show (a formal gala event) and the Heather Ridley Fleeman Battle for Hope (5K, 10K, family fun walk). We rely heavily on dedicated volunteers to help us plan and execute these events. Background checks and orientation required.

Professional “Pro Bono” Services
We employ professional licensed social workers and registered nurses to carry out our programs. We engage volunteers with these or related professional designations and related experience who are willing to donate their time to be a part of our service delivery teams. Orientation and background check required, other training to be determined by volunteer role.

Administrative & Outreach Volunteers
Help us with filing, answering phones, processing mailings, organizing, data entry, etc. around the Hope Cancer Resources office. Volunteers can also represent Hope Cancer Resources at volunteer or health fairs, staffing information tables at special events, and other outreach efforts. We offer a fun atmosphere and the reward of supporting our programs in very necessary ways. Volunteers must have daytime availability. Background checks and orientation required.

Episodic or One Time Volunteers
Can you staff a water station at our race? Help us set up the room for Gentlemen of Distinction? Do you have a group that could help us complete special projects such as large mailings or clean up/repair to our office or equipment? No long term commitment required.

Third-Party Fundraising Volunteers
Can you conduct a penny drive at your school? Are you willing to donate a portion of your business sales to Hope Cancer Resources? We are honored by your generosity and willingness to support cancer patients in Northwest Arkansas. Please contact us so we can provide you with more information.
