Volunteer drivers helping cancer patients get to treatment

About

Every day cancer patients in your area miss potentially life-saving cancer treatment appointments, simply because they couldn’t get there. Some don’t have a car, and others may be too ill to drive. But they all need the same thing: A ride.

In our Road To Recovery program, volunteers use their own vehicles to drive cancer patients to and from their appointments. This rewarding experience allows you to provide meaningful support in your community on a flexible schedule that works for you. You’ll meet incredible people and provide encouragement to cancer patients when they need it the most.

Each year, the American Cancer Society provides over 283,000 rides to and from appointments for over 15,000 patients, but there are more people who need our help.

Volunteers are needed in your area. Please visit www.cancer.org/drive or call 1-800-227-2345 for more information.
