I am a public relations volunteer with the American Cancer Society. At times, my experience as a volunteer is humbling, and at times, heartwarming and uplifting. Regardless, I feel like my time is wel

I volunteer with the hope and resolve that some day cancer will no longer be a major health problem.

The week of April 23-29, is

National Volunteer Week.

For 32 years, we have recognized the wonderful men and women who are making our world a better place.

If you are in a position to give of yourself, please do so.

I urge everyone

to find a good cause or organization – whatever it may be – that could benefit from your time, passion and commitment. Volunteering

makes a difference to people you care about in your community.

You can make a difference.
