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 with cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves.
For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to their treatment, our Road To Recovery® volunteers donate their spare time and their personal vehicles to give cancer patients a much-needed lift.
Even the best treatment can’t work if a patient can’t get there. That’s why a successful transportation assistance program can be a tremendous, potentially life-saving asset to your community.
How do you know if you are eligible for the Road To Recovery® program?
Patients must be traveling to an appointment for:
- Cancer treatment
- Follow-up at any time after treatment
