Volunteers are true stars — exceptional individuals who take the extra steps that make a difference in another person’s life. They help in countless ways by making a child giggle or an older person smile. They comfort families who are worried about loved ones. Through deeds large and small, volunteers help patients and their families feel better during difficult times.
