When a person is diagnosed with cancer, they and their loved ones may feel like their world has turned upside down. We know that talking to others who’ve gone through a similar experience is comforting.
Cinnie Lee, one of our Chinese CancerConnection volunteers who joined the program three years after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In her eight years with CancerConnection, Cinnie has had 68 clients. A strong believer in the importance of helping others, this positive person makes a real difference in her clients’ lives. Cinnie is a treat to talk to, always sunny and upbeat, but never in a way that discounts the feelings of her clients. Here are just a few comments from her clients:
“She is a great volunteer with a caring heart.”
“Cinnie is a wonderful supporter to me. The CCS and its volunteers are so great in offering to help strangers. I was down at the bottom of the valley, but now I’m more up and being more open about my disease with my friends and not shutting myself off. Thank you so much.”
“She was great and encouraging. She was so friendly and shared her positive personal experience; I was very grateful to be connected with her.”
