Make a Difference in a Cancer Patient's Life!
We have partnered with the American Cancer Society to open a Cancer Resource Center housed in the Sky Ridge Cancer Center. If you are a cancer survivor (at least one year out from treatment) and would like to offer support, information and assistance to cancer patients, both in our cancer center and throughout the community, please contact John Penn.
Healing Hearts Program
Bill Gray, an open-heart surgery survivor, helped create our "Healing Hearts" program.
We are proud to offer this volunteer-run, open heart-support program called, "Healing Hearts." Ideally, you would be an open heart survivor, or a family member who has cared for a loved one during this experience. Our Healing Hearts Volunteers support patients before and after their procedure, and comfort family and loved ones. Volunteers are needed on an “on-call” basis and possess strong communication skills.
Pet Therapy Program at Sky Ridge
Sky Ridge has had an Animal-Assisted therapy program since the summer of 2008. All of our handlers are volunteers and enjoy helping patients through their love of canines. The teams are evaluated and registered by Pet Partners, and due to its high quality, need to be re-evaluated every two years. Click here to learn more about our Pet Therapy Program>>
Become a Serenity Tea Volunteer
The goal of our Serenity Tea Program is to enhance the patient experience by direct, positive interaction with caring volunteers. This core group will serve tea and treats to our new moms and, most importantly, brighten the patient’s day with a smile. Volunteers will develop rapport with patients and family members and work with nursing units to gather additional information or escalate a matter when necessary.
