The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program provides transportation for cancer patients to and from treatment, a valuable service to cancer patients in your community. Transportation to cancer treatments, often scheduled on a daily basis for many weeks, can cause great difficulty for patients and their families. The goal of the program is to assist cancer patients while they are receiving cancer-related medical treatment. To volunteer call 1-800-227-2345 or visit www.cancer.org
