Do something beautiful

JOIN OUR TEAM

Since 1992, thousands of people have offered their time and skills to LGFB. We couldn’t make our program a reality without the big hearts and talents of our volunteer team from coast to coast who deliver our curriculum with empathy and equity, helping to empower and educate those facing cancer.


Submit an application to become a volunteer and use your talent to do something beautiful for those facing cancer.

Our volunteers have nothing but amazing things to say about the program.

But don’t take our word for it – take it from Agnes, a cancer survivor turned volunteer:

"I remember how crucial it was for me to be around positive people when hope was so low. Now, as a volunteer, I have a chance to offer a positive energy, attitude, and knowledge about how to empower yourself with makeup and hair; for a woman facing cancer it is so helpful and truly mind-strengthening."
- Agnes, Cancer Survivour, LGFB Volunteer
