Help deliver a powerful dose of "T.L.C."
Getting a serious medical diagnosis can be overwhelming. Patients often have to work to understand their illness, make decisions about their care and confront their fear of unfamiliar treatments. Those requiring chemotherapy treatment at the NYPBMH Infusion Center do not have to go through their first experience alone. Supportive volunteers provide guidance and comfort to promote a positive introduction so that each patient can focus on what matters most: getting better. As a Welcome Ambassador, you will guide first time chemotherapy patients from the moment they set the appointment to the days following their initial treatment. You will answer questions, provide important information, cheerful conversation and tangible comforts such as blankets and refreshments on the day of the visit. Welcome Ambassadors help patients feel less anxious and more cared for.
