SURGERY BUDDIES

Being Surgery Buddy!
Volunteers

One of our core values is "We don't have to do this alone."  Use this opportunity to give back and help all of the other parents and caregivers out there. 

 

There are just a few simple things that we ask of our surgery buddy volunteers.

 

  • Maintain privacy

  • Message or speak with the caregiver on their schedule (We'll help with this info)

  • Be compassionate, listen, and validate

  • Share your experiences
