VOLUNTEER WITH CNETS
How Can You Help?
The Canadian Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (CNETS) is still a small charity organization.
So, here’s your opportunity to get in on the ground floor and make a difference.
We need your help.
There are many ways that you can help us reach our goals. Here are just a few:
1. Join one of our Task Forces or donate your time or talent
Not everyone has the means to make a donation, but they may have some time to offer by helping out on one of our Task Forces. These are the people that are working behind the scenes to keep our Society in motion. CNETS is always on the lookout for new volunteers.
2. Share your Story
Are you or someone you know a neuroendocrine patient? Talk about it. Share your personal experience. It will be posted online so that others can benefit from what you’ve been through.
3. Join a Support Group or Start One
One of the aims of CNETS is to provide emotional and educational support to those suffering from neuroendocrine cancers. Sharing with other NET patients is a great way to start.
4. Become a Support Group Leader
We are always on the lookout for individuals who want to lead a support group in their region. We are flexible in defining the role and the warm, caring souls who take on this role should find it easy and fulfilling. A Group Leader is a person who takes the lead in arranging round-table gatherings of patients and is also available for ad hoc one-on-one meetings, phone calls, or emails with NET patients or their family members or friends as and when it is mutually convenient and needed.
A Group Leader will also be a point of contact for other groups in Canada as well as CNETS a itself. In his/her area, the Group Leader may, either personally or through others, advance the neuroendocrine cancer awareness mission among health professionals and institutions.
5. Your Business Can Help
Are you in business? We need your services. Are you a printer, a travel agent, an events coordinator, a hair salon? We can auction or raffle gift certificates, in kind gifts, or products from your company to raise funds neuroendocrine cancer awareness.
6. Share your Ideas
If you have any other ideas that you feel we could benefit from, please let us know.
