The American Cancer Society needs volunteer drivers to help patients
Cancer patients list transportation as one of the biggest roadblocks to treatment.
The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program alleviates that burden by providing cancer patients with free rides to and from treatment.
For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to cancer-related medical appointments, trained volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their personal vehicles to help patients get to the treatments they need.
If you are between the ages of 18-85, have a current driver’s license, a good driving record, adequate automobile insurance and access to a safe and reliable vehicle you may be a good candidate for this program.
Training is done on-line with easy to understand videos. Scheduling is done through an easy-to-use online program that you can adjust for what days, what hours and how far you wish to drive.
Interested volunteers can visit: www.cancer.org/drive or call (800) 227-2345.
If you are a patient and want to request a ride, contact the American Cancer Society at (800) 227-2345 a minimum of three business days in advance of the date that the ride is needed.
