There are so many ways you can help make a difference in the lives of patients and families today.
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2022 Volunteer of Distinction Awards.
Volunteering and sharing our stories allows us to open our hearts to those around us and nurture a bond built from a mutual understanding of the other person’s adversities. Volunteering has allowed us to cross each other’s paths and now walk as a team towards a similar cause – to cure brain tumours.
To me, volunteering is the key to bridging the knowledge gaps in society, allowing us to seek and provide support to others through multiple forms. In addition, volunteerism brings together communities across boundaries to share their knowledge and break stigmas and stereotypes.
Volunteering continually reminds me that we are working towards the shared human goal of attaining a more equitable and prosperous global community. Volunteering is a way to do my part to help carve out the end. Volunteering is our collective fight for the changes we believe in–changes that make our community more prosperous for everyone, regardless of ethnicity, gender, or ability.
Whether survivors or volunteers, any connection to the brain tumour world gives us a common thread and connection. One that crosses boundaries and gives you the liberty to cut to the chase and make that special connection.
