Unique, award-winning program is a way to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients
SEATTLE – A wide variety of volunteer positions are available at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, located on the campus of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood. Current openings include volunteer drivers, concierges, greeters, tour guides, as well as volunteers to work at Hutch School and the departments of Child Life, Physical Therapy and Patient Education. Additionally, volunteers are sought for the labyrinth walk, a special meditation program in the SCCA’s Spiritual and Religious Program.
Information about these roles and application forms can be found on the SCCA’s Web site at www.seattlecca.org/scca-become-a-volunteer.cfm or by calling Susan Greenwood at (206) 288-1072 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mandatory orientation and training sessions for new volunteers are scheduled for Oct. 23 and Oct. 30, so it’s important to return application forms as soon as possible.
Being a volunteer at the SCCA is a rewarding experience as well as an opportunity to work for an award-winning volunteer program. It recently won the first Program Excellence Award ever given by the Washington State Society of Directors of Volunteer Services.

A major focus of SCCA is to speed the transfer of new diagnostic and treatment techniques from the research setting to the patient bedside while providing premier, patient-focused cancer care. Patients who come to SCCA receive the latest research-based cancer therapies as well as cutting-edge treatments for a number of non-malignant diseases under development by its partner organizations.
