Together we are stronger than cancer!
One of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment is transportation. That’s why the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery Program provides patients in need with free rides to treatment. And we need your help. Our volunteers have provided hundreds of thousands of rides for patients, but the need for drivers continues to accelerate. As a leader in your community, you’re positioned to inspire others to become volunteer drivers.
So please, help us spread the word about the importance of giving patients a much-needed ride to their cancer-related medical appointments. Encourage your connections in the community to become involved; they may be surprised by what hey get in return.
“Our Road to Recovery program is growing: Last year our program in NC gave over 13,000 rides,” reports Jane Smart, American Cancer Society’s Program Manager, Mission Delivery, for Central North Carolina.
