Cancer Society Reaching Out for Volunteers

Individuals interested in providing cancer patients with transportation to treatment facilities may participate in the American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program.

Volunteers must complete an American Cancer Society training course and have a good driving record, a current and valid driver’s license, access to a safe and reliable vehicle, proof of adequate automobile insurance and availability Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.

“One of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment can be transportation,” reads information about the Road to Recovery program provided by the American Cancer Society. “Even though our volunteers have driven hundreds of thousands of patients to their cancer care, the need continues to grow. Help us spread the word that something as simple as offering a ride can help save a life. Encourage your community organizations and partners to become volunteer drivers today.”

Those interested in volunteering may visit, contact their local American Cancer Society office or call (800) 227-2345.
