One of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment can be transportation. That's why the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides patients in need with free rides to treatment. Our volunteers have provided hundreds of thousands of rides for patients, but the need for drivers continues to accelerate. Volunteer in your community now, and help give patients a much-needed ride. You might be surprised by the pick-me-up you get in return. FLEXIBLE schedule. Volunteer drivers can set their own schedules and choose what distances they are willing to travel. Training takes place online. Requirements include a good driving record, a current driver's license, proof of adequate automobile insurance and access to a safe and reliable vehicle. Must be aged 18 - 84 years old. To volunteer in your community or for more information, visit cancer.org/drive or call the American Cancer Society at 1.800.227.2345.

Volunteers are also needed to help with Road To Recovery driver recruitment, by way of using social media and/or attending local community events.

Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.

Description

Across the country, the Society seeks to fulfill its mission to save lives and diminish suffering from cancer through community-based programs aimed at reducing the risk of cancer, detecting cancer as early as possible, ensuring proper treatment, and empowering people facing cancer to cope with the disease and maintain the highest possible quality of life. In South Jersey alone, thousands of cancer patients receive services to help them battle the disease every year.

More than two million volunteers carry out the Society's mission of eliminating cancer and improving quality of life for those individuals facing the disease. These dedicated volunteers donate their time and talents to further cancer research; educate the public about early detection and prevention; advocate for responsible cancer legislation in the local, state, and federal governments; and serve cancer patients and their families as they manage their cancer experience.

Providing the public with accurate, up-to-date information on cancer is a priority for the American Cancer Society. The Society provides information on all aspects of cancer through a toll-free information line, web site, and published materials. Cancer information and support are available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week by calling 1-800-ACS-2345 or by visiting www.cancer.org.
