There are many charities out there seeking a little extra help in making a difference in the lives of those dealing with breast cancer.

Start with the American Cancer Society, which has several programs that put volunteers to work. Contact your local chapter to see what services might need your help.

Consider, for example, the Road to Recovery program, which provides transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves.

Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.

Or, if you have office skills, you can donate your services to local breast cancer support groups that could use your help. And if you happen to have cosmetology skills, Look Good ... Feel Better, is always seeking volunteers to help teach women how to deal with hair loss, as well as take care of skin and nails during treatment.
