Become a Volunteer

Each year volunteers travel at their own expense and raise money to support travel and the cost of supplies in addition to their vacation time donated. For some, this might be their first year,  for others they are returning for their tenth trip. But for all involved- it is life changing. Help us by becoming a volunteer to help save the life a very deserving patient!
