What volunteer opportunities does AAMDSIF have?

We provide many service and volunteer opportunities. Anyone can be a volunteer - there's no such thing as a "typical" or “one-size-fits-all” volunteer.

Volunteering opportunities vary greatly in both time commitment and activity.  You can do something as simple as sending an email to your Congressman or something as elaborate as a full-scale fundraising event. Here are a few things to consider:

• Become a Peer Support Network volunteer.  The Peer Support Network Connection program consists of a national network of volunteers, including patients, caregivers and family members, willing to listen and offer comfort and support to patients, their family members and caregivers. To become a volunteer you must have been diagnosed at least one year ago and complete a training.

  • Hold a fundraising and/or awareness event in your area. Plan an event on your own in just a few short weeks, or pull together family and friends to organize a larger event.
  • March for Marrow walks occur in numerous communities each year and we are always looking to add new ones.
  • Join a Community of Hope support group
  • Lead a Community of Hope support group. These volunteer led local groups are designed help create an ongoing, local organization supporting patients and families, and raising awareness and support for AAMDSIF.
