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 - Friday, primarily between 7 am and 7 pm. Drivers should have regular availability at some point during that time frame (you choose your availability).

If you own or have regular access to a safe, reliable vehicle, then you’re already on the road to volunteering. But you’ll also need:

  • Between the ages of 18 and 84.
  • Valid driver’s license and adequate automobile insurance.
  • Access to a safe and reliable vehicle.
  • Pass background check and motor vehicle records checks.
  • Comfortable using technology with reliable internet access.
  • Complete required training and follow through on ride commitments.
  • Appreciation and respect for diverse backgrounds, lifestyles and cultures of patients, caregivers, volunteers, and staff.
  • Must certify completion of COVID-19 vaccination series at least 14 days prior to participating in the program and agree to stay up to date with vaccination series, including all recommended vaccine boosters.
