More from The Road to Recovery Program:
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 transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.
The American Cancer Society has a vast volunteer network in which individuals can make a difference in the fight against cancer. Volunteers can help with the Road to Recovery program by serving as volunteer drivers or coordinators.
- Volunteer drivers donate their time and resources to take patients to treatment and back home again. They also provide encouragement and support. Drivers must have a valid driver’s license for the state where they live. They must also have a safe, reliable vehicle and proof of automobile insurance. Volunteer drivers must have a good driving history and be in good health.
- Driver coordinators help schedule the rides. Coordinators can work whenever it’s convenient for them, one day a week, during the evening, or weekends. All it takes is as little as four hours a week of your time, organization, and communication skills to make a major impact on the well-being of cancer patients in your community.
