Every day cancer patients in your area miss potentially life-saving cancer treatment appointments, simply because they couldn’t get there.
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.
Volunteer drivers can customize their own schedules and mileage preferences. Opportunities to volunteer are posted on our ride matching website and you only select the rides that works best for you! There are no minimum hours or ride requirements to join.
We are leading research and treatment advancements everyday... but they can’t help the person who misses their appointment.
Volunteer drivers must:
Have a current, valid driver’s license Be between the ages of 18-84 Have a good driving record Have access to a safe and reliable vehicle Provide proof of adequate automobile insurance
