Ways to Help Wednesday

Road to Recovery

One of the biggest roadblocks to timely quality cancer treatment is the lack of transportation. Family and friends may help but over the course of several months,
they may not always have the time or resources to provide every ride. That’s why the American Cancer Society started the Road To Recovery® program. It is at the very heart of our work of removing barriers to quality health care by providing patients with transportation to treatment and other cancer-related appointments through volunteer drivers, partners, and community organizations.

If you are curious how you can get involved with this program, it’s easy to learn more.  Just click here…  https://www.cancer.org/involved/volunteer/road-to-recovery.html

As a cancer patient, are you wondering how you might be able to get a ride???

How does the program work?

Depending on your individual needs and what’s available in your area, we will:

  • Coordinate a ride with an American Cancer Society volunteer driver
  • Coordinate a ride with a local organization that has partnered with us to provide transportation
  • Refer you to a local resource you can contact for help

Am I eligible?

Patients must be traveling to a cancer-related medical appointment.

Other eligibility requirements may apply. For example, a caregiver may need to accompany a patient who cannot walk without help or is under age 18. Contact us to find out what is available in your area, and what the specific requirements are.

It can take several business days to coordinate your ride, so please call us at 1-800-227-2345 well in advance of your appointment date.
