Volunteer in an association

Volunteer in an association

Published : 2019-06-04 - Categories : Better living after cancer

Several associations exist in France. 

Their objectives are:

  • To SUPPORT women with cancer. The message given is "They have been there". Volunteers are people (male and female) who have had cancer. They can share their experiences.
  • To SENSITIZE health professionals. Women affected by cancer have needs and expectations that need to be heard. 
  • To PARTICIPATE in prevention and promotion of cancer screening.

Your commitment to its associations is important. To be a volunteer, you must:

  • Have a multi-year perspective on your cancer,
  • Be attentive to the needs of sick people, 
  • Understand the limits, 
  • Refer women to the most appropriate resources for them,
  • Have knowledge on the subject of cancer: treatments etc.

Your role is to reassure them and tell them to trust doctors. 

The sharing 

Exchanging with a person who has experienced the same illness is reassuring for the person who is ill and also provides essential support.

The objective of an association is to share its experiences, advice and knowledge. 

You know the difficulties experienced because of treatments, physical and emotional difficulties, appropriate words and attitudes...

Being a volunteer means being understanding and listening. A moment of exchange and sharing.
