For many cancer patients, getting to and from treatment is the greatest barrier in beating the disease. Daily or weekly treatments over a period of months can be difficult and cause some patients to miss their treatment appointments.

Road to Recovery is an American Cancer Society program designed to ensure that cancer patients have transportation to and from medical facilities for treatments. Volunteer drivers provide patients with a ride in order to keep them on their regular treatment schedule. This program is very flexible and allows volunteers to drive patients to and from treatment based on their schedule.

If you have a driver’s license, access to a vehicle, between the ages of 18 - 84, a safe driving record, personal automobile insurance, pass a background check and moto vehicle records check, and can spare as little as two mornings or an afternoon a month, please consider volunteering as a Road to Recovery driver and play a key role in a cancer patient’s life.

Please include your call back phone number in the comments of your volunteer inquiry.
