Volunteers: Our partners in our quest to find cancer cures.

Our volunteers are part of a diverse community of supporters who represent all walks of life and bring different experiences and passions to drive forward our mission.

Beating cancer is in our blood, whether you are going through a diagnosis, caring for someone who has been impacted, or simply want to know a world without blood cancer.


Each day, volunteers give their time and talent in extraordinary ways to support our mission.

With countless ways to engage, from raising critical funds, to driving forward policies that benefit patients, to providing support to those impacted by cancer, our volunteers are truly making a difference.

Campaign Volunteers

Tens of thousands of volunteers help make our signature fundraising campaigns a success! Volunteers can run, hike, walk, sail, build teams and gain lifelong learning skills while raising awareness and critical funds to drive forward our mission.

Mission Volunteers

In communities across the country, volunteers provide direct support to blood cancer patients, caregivers and families, and advocate for policy changes at the state and federal level.

Leadership Volunteers

We have the unwavering support of hundreds of top leaders across the country, who help LLS at the highest level and champion our game changing impact.

Community Volunteers

With 56 chapters across the country, there are many opportunities for volunteers to dedicate their time and talent in their own community, as well as in our national office. Do you have a skill you can offer?


Whatever your skills and experience, whatever amount of time you have, we have a rewarding volunteer opportunity for you!

You can help bring us closer to cancer cures.
