Volunteer Drivers Helping Cancer Patients!


Can you help receive, monitor, and update rides for cancer patients by contacting volunteer drivers in IA all while volunteering from your home? If so, we need your help! The American Cancer Society is seeking Road to Recovery Volunteer Coordinators for several areas throughout Iowa.

Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. The American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program provides free rides to and from treatment for people who have cancer and do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves.

The Volunteer Coordinator for Road to Recovery helps to monitor patient ride requests through an online website. The Coordinator reviews the status of requests and contacts volunteer drivers by phone or by email regarding unfilled rides on a weekly basis. Coordinators must be accurate, timely, and organized. Coordinators must have a personal computer or tablet with internet access and email. Volunteers must also be sensitive to the needs of cancer patients and be respectful of the patient's right to confidentiality.

Volunteer Coordinators will be supported by American Cancer Society staff and must complete a training to help prepare them for their new role. To find out if a Road to Recovery Volunteer Coordinator is needed in your area, please call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit
