Cancer Survivors Circle of Strength of Arizona (CSCSofAZ) is a community of volunteers. We are cancer survivors, caregivers and others who have been touched by our cancer journeys.
A Circle of Strength volunteer might provide peer support, event support or organization support. Whatever the volunteer activity, our volunteers bring their experiences, skills, abilities and the belief that others will benefit from our cancer journeys.
Cancer Survivors Circle of Strength was founded by people impacted by cancer who recognized the positive effects of volunteering for the volunteer; the importance to survivors and caregivers of community and of “giving back”; the need for volunteers in the cancer community, and the value of peer support.
Our founders planning culminated in CSCS of Az becoming a sponsored project of the Technical Assistance Partnership of Arizona in October 2014. Volunteer recruitment and volunteering for cancer related organizations began in 2015. In July 2017, Cancer Survivors Circle of Strength became a 501(c)(3).
The Circle of Strength Board of Directors consists of cancer survivors, caregivers, and people who have worked in the cancer field. They all have been and are passionate volunteers.
