About

Every day in Rowan County, cancer patients need help getting to and from treatment at cancer treatment centers. You can help provide this life-saving service by becoming a volunteer driver with the American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program.

The Society’s Road to Recovery program offers transportation to cancer patients. Many of them do not own a vehicle, cannot afford the extra gasoline, or do not have access to public transportation. Some patients are elderly and unable to drive, and have no family members or friends to provide regular assistance with transportation.

A successful Road to Recovery program is a tremendous asset to the community, and our volunteers provide an essential and necessary service. They ensure that cancer patients are able to receive life-saving treatments.

Join this meaningful program and make a positive difference in the lives of those in your community.

Requirements to be a Road to Recovery volunteer include a good driving record, a valid driver’s license, auto insurance, a vehicle that is in good working condition, and you must be between the ages of 18 and 85. Background and DMV checks are required. Training is provided.

For more information about the Road to Recovery program contact Allison Reeves at allison.reeves@cancer.org.
