Program:

The American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program relies on volunteer drivers to take cancer patients to and from their treatments. Lack of transportation is often a major problem for cancer patients when either they have no transportation or are too ill to drive. Family and friends may help, but are not always available. We are looking for more volunteer drivers to help cancer patients in your area. Time commitments vary but rides are generally during the weekday and each Road to Recovery volunteer driver decides how much time he or she contributes. Requirements for participation include a valid, current driver’s license, a safe driving record and proof of insurance, as well as completing the application process and a brief training session. For more information on volunteering as a Road to Recovery driver, contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org/drive.
