Kankakee County - countywideKankakee, IL 60901
Road to Recovery Driver


When transportation is a cancer patient’s biggest roadblock to treatment, we help provide the rides that can help save lives. The American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program offers cancer patients free transportation to and from their cancer-related treatment. For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to treatment, volunteers donate their spare time and the use of their personal vehicle to give cancer patients in their community a much-needed ride.

Right now, one of the biggest barriers to cancer care is transportation. Because, even the best treatment can’t work if a patient can’t get there. Family and friends may help, but over the course of several months, they may not always have the time or financial means to provide every ride.

Volunteer using your own car to help drive patients in your community to and from their lifesaving chemotherapy and radiation treatments... This opportunity is for weekdays (during the day). This is a very flexible opportunity that can make all the difference to a cancer patient who is not able to get to treatment.
