UCAN Volunteers

     United Cancer Assistance Network (UCAN) volunteers are at the heart of UCAN. They assist in a number of important patient-focused activities. UCAN volunteers

  • maintain extensive patient information and educational video libraries,
  • stock hats, wigs, scarves and turbans,
  • visit patients and their families,
  • direct support programs, and
  • assist with fund-raising campaigns.

     UCAN volunteers know what it means to battle cancer. Each has been touched by the disease, either as a victim or as the family member or friend of someone who has fought the battle against cancer. For more information about UCAN volunteer services, please call 573-776-1892.

Board of Directors

     Local citizens comprise the organization's Board of Directors. Board members are volunteers, giving freely of their time, energy and expertise. They share a common goal--to see local cancer patients live the best quality of life possible.

The Board periodically reviews all written requests for assistance. In certain instances, emergency meetings may be held to review special cases.

How YOU CAN help...

     If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer and is in need of assistance, contact the United Cancer Assistance Network (UCAN) at 573-776-1892 and speak with a volunteer or leave a message and your call will be returned promptly.

     Each request for assistance requires an application. This procedure begins with your phone call to UCAN where a trained volunteer will begin the application process by gathering preliminary information. After the application process is completed, the request will be evaluated by the Board of Directors as required. All applicants will be notified of program qualification within ten (10) days of their request.
