American Cancer Society Offers Road to Recovery

( Omaha , Neb. )-- The American Cancer Society is offering transportation help for cancer patients in Omaha with its Road to Recovery program. This service utilizes volunteer drivers who provide cancer patients transportation to and from their scheduled medical appointments. Drivers donate their time and the use of their personal vehicles to help ensure that cancer patients get the lifesaving treatments they need. Lack of transportation sometimes leaves cancer patients with few options for completing their treatment schedules. Many patients need daily or weekly treatments over a period of months and simply have no way to get there. Although family and friends may be able to help, there are many times when they're not available. Road to Recovery provides transportation options for patients in this situation. To arrange transportation, patients must contact the American Cancer Society at 402-393-5801 as soon as they know they will need a ride. Advance notice is required to receive a Road to Recovery ride. Patients should not assume that their Road to Recovery driver will be able to take them to daily appointments. Road to Recovery is available on an "as needed" basis, after all other transportation options have been exhausted and is available within Omaha city limits only. The American Cancer Society is continuously looking for new volunteer drivers who possess a good driving record and a serviceable vehicle who are willing to assist in transporting these cancer patients. To become a volunteer driver or to find out more about the Road to Recovery program, please call 402-393-5801 .
