Saginaw County needs volunteer Road To Recovery drivers to help cancer patients get to and from treatment.

We've all been touched by cancer; either personally or someone we know. Many of you know the multiple appointments and struggles a patient may face as they go through their cancer journey. Often people diagnosed with cancer do not feel well enough to drive themselves, do not have family near by to help, or do not have access to a vehicle.

Road To Recovery supports patients with FREE transportation.

Our volunteer drivers have access to use of an ACS owned Dodge Caravan. As a volunteer driver you are in control of your own schedule. You choose which days you would like to drive, how far, you will know the length of appointment; rides are never assigned. Driving opportunities are weekdays during regular business hours.

Click 'I want to help' to get answers to all your volunteer questions. You will be saving a life every time you drive.
Although COVID-19 has temporarily suspended our Road To Recovery program we welcome new volunteers to join us and complete training. When we are able to safely resume services we anticipate an increase of ride requests. Your help will be need more than ever before!
Cancer never quits and neither do we!
