National Volunteer Week (NVW) is April 24-30, 2022, a week to recognize and thank BCC volunteers for the time and energy they provide to help people affected by bladder cancer.
The National Volunteer Week theme for 2022, Volunteering is Empathy in Action, affirms the strong connection between volunteerism and empathy. This profoundly human connection is at the heart of strong communities. From coast to coast to coast in formal and informal settings, volunteers work to create caring, collaborative, and compassionate communities.
During National Volunteer Week, we celebrate all our volunteers whose empathy and generosity help connect people to the larger bladder cancer community in Canada.
Make sure you check out our social media sites next week to hear stories and learn more about the amazing contributions our volunteers make!
We are always looking for new ways to share how we support patients, raise awareness and increase research to Canadians across the country. We know that 12,000 Canadians will be diagnosed with bladder cancer this year and that the earlier the diagnosis, the better the outcome. Please share this newsletter, direct people to our website or share our social sites with them. You could also consider making a small donation to BCC – we will use your donation in a responsible and transparent way. Funds are used to help patients directly, through support, awareness and research. As always, we genuinely appreciate your support for helping Canada be more #bladdercanceraware!
