Drive Cancer Patients to Treatment as a Road To Recovery Volunteer - Contra Costa County

ORGANIZATION: AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

Drive for good 2023M

Transportation is key to cancer care

For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to their treatment, our Road To Recovery(r) volunteers donate their spare time to give cancer patients a much-needed lift.

Why is this important?

Even the best treatment can’t work if a patient can’t get there. That’s why a successful transportation assistance program can be a tremendous, potentially life-saving asset to your community.

To volunteer, what do you need?

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.
