At times, we also arrange for meetings where cancer survivors visit cancer patients one-on-one and motivate them with their inspiring journey. We have seen this to be immensely beneficial for cancer patients. We are looking for volunteers who can help us search for cancer survivors to share with the world.

We are looking for volunteers who can scout for content to put on this repository.
7. Content – Write articles & blogs
Articles and Blogs have been a major medium for sharing information on cancer for us. Most of our articles till few months ago were outsourced to an external content writing agency, which resulted in high costs in this direction.

We are looking for volunteers who can help us in this regard.
