The American Cancer Society Needs Volunteer Drivers
Cancer patients list transportation as one of the biggest roadblocks to treatment. The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program alleviates that burden by providing cancer patients with free rides to and from treatment. The American Cancer Society needs volunteer drivers for this program.
If you are between the ages of 18-85, have a current driver’s license, a good driving record, automobile insurance and access to a safe and reliable vehicle, you may be a good candidate to be a volunteer driver. Training is done online with easy-to-understand videos. Scheduling is done through an easy-to-use online program that you can adjust for what days, what hours, and far you wish to drive. Interested volunteers can contact their local society office, visit cancer.org/drive, or call 1-800-227-2345.
Patients that want to request a ride should contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 a minimum of three (3) business days in advance of the date that the ride is needed.
