Despite remarkable progress in the fight against cancer, there are many cancer patients today whose greatest challenge isn’t lack of treatment. It’s lack of transportation.
Right now, the American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program needs volunteers to drive cancer patients to and from their treatments. If you have a car and insurance, safe driving skills, and can drive as little as one morning or afternoon a month, you can give someone peace of mind and the chance to get to their potentially lifesaving treatments.
Those who need cancer information or a ride, contact the American Cancer Society 24 hours a day at 1-800-227-2345.
