Road To Recovery Volunteer
Volunteer drivers helping cancer patients get to treatment

Road To Recovery is an American Cancer Society program designed to help improve the quality of life and reduce barriers to care for cancer patients undergoing active treatment by transporting them to and from cancer-related treatment appointments.

The Road To Recovery Volunteer driver can help provide people with transportation to and from their cancer-related treatment appointments. Drivers donate their time and the use of their personal vehicles to help ensure that people with cancer get the treatments they need. Volunteer drivers are also there to show support and provide information and resource referrals coordinated through the American Cancer Society.

Keep in mind that most rides are needed during Monday - Saturdays, primarily between 7 am and 7 pm. Drivers should have regular availability during that time frame

Drivers are notified about rides needed through our online system, and drivers then can accept or decline the requested rides they can help with depending on what the availability. This opportunity is very flexible!

Volunteer drivers must have:

* A current, valid driver’s license and between the ages of 18-84
* A good driving record
* Access to a safe and reliable vehicle
* Proof of adequate automobile insurance

Every volunteer must clear a background check and take an online training to help prepare them for their new role. To learn more visit cancer.org/drive or call 1-800-227-2345!
