Get to know our volunteers!

Foundation volunteers participate in events, represent the Foundation and help with administrative tasks. Whatever their assignment, each and every volunteer gets support and training to contribute to our mission to raise awareness about breast cancer.

Our volunteers share their stories:

In my volunteer work, I have met an extraordinary team of passionate people who care about the physical and psychological well-being of women with breast cancer. By spending time with everyone involved, I have witnessed firsthand the good that kindness and generosity can do for others and oneself!

Volunteering at the Foundation is a way I can be part of a group of people working to make things better and to continue growing and learning now that I’m retired. Life has been good to me and I want to give back to others. Here, I have the chance to do something useful and pay it forward.

My volunteering is mainly a way to be useful to the Foundation, but it is also rewarding for me because I am supporting, in my own small way, all the women fighting breast cancer.

I feel I’ve found the right volunteer work for me at the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation. I’ve been there for almost three years. I feel like I’m useful and serve a purpose. It’s also very enriching personally. First off, because of the interactions I sometimes have with the women affected by the disease. There is a kind of ‘light’ in their words, attitudes, willpower and struggle that give me strength. But I also see, day in and a day out, the ongoing efforts the entire Foundation team makes to comfort those affected and advance medical research and treatments.
