Giving someone a hug is one of the most meaningful things you can do because it shows you care.
I’ve volunteered at Bronson Battle Creek Cancer Care Center for over 30 years. When my mother passed away from cancer in 1988, I started volunteering. I felt a void in my life after the loss and wanted to give back. I was familiar with the Cancer Care Center and the employees and decided to sign up to volunteer. I hope I can do it for the rest of my life! Though you see your fair share of sadness come through, I feel that if I am able to make somebody smile, that’s made my day. Often, I sit and talk with patients and listen to their stories. Having gone through a loss myself, I can relate to them. Sometimes, giving someone a hug is one of the most meaningful things you can do because it shows you care.
