How You Can Help
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center was established in 1941 and volunteers were a part of the institution from the start. The Department of Volunteer Services, however, was not formally organized until 1954 when the hospital relocated to its current location.
Our volunteers provide service and support in programs throughout the institution and partner with nonprofits and the private sector to increase the impact of MD Anderson in the community. We have the best of all worlds at MD Anderson – the absolute finest in patient care and research and an army of volunteers enriched by the experiences and background that each person brings to their job.
Volunteers join with the faculty and staff to offer our patients care and compassion while demonstrating commitment, integrity and a sense of discovery in their work. Together we are a making a difference. Since 1941, our mission has remained the same: to eliminate cancer in Texas, the nation and the world.
The mission of the Department of Volunteer Services is to provide excellence in volunteer service and support to patients, families, faculty, staff and community partners with care, integrity and compassion.
Through our committed and caring volunteer team, we will be the foremost leader in providing innovative, effective volunteer support services dedicated to improving the quality of life of cancer patients.
