Our Road to Recovery Program in Mat-Su (Palmer and Wasilla) provides free rides for cancer patients in the Valley who have no way to get to their treatment appointments. Volunteer drivers donate their time using their own vehicles to get patients to and from the treatments they need.
For some patients, the ride to and from treatment makes or breaks the ability to pursue treatment.
Drive with us, and we'll train you and give you the support you need to donate this life-saving service!
To qualify to become a Road to Recovery Driver: A current, valid driver's license, a good driving record, a safe and reliable vehicle and proof of car insurance. A background check is conducted on all volunteers.
The American Cancer Society will provide the necessary training through our on-line Volunteer Learning Center, as well as support through our staff and volunteers in Alaska.
(We only ask that you donate at least one ride a month.)
Drivers may be from any part of the Valley. For training and accepting requests for rides we do ask that they have a reliable internet connection.
