The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program is in great need of volunteers to drive local cancer patients to and from their lifesaving chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments. An integral part of treating cancer successfully is making sure cancer patients receive their treatments, but many find making transportation arrangements is a challenge. The American Cancer Society provided more than 3,100 cancer patients with rides to treatment in Florida last year, but there is a critical need for new volunteer drivers to keep up with the demand for transportation.
“There is a great need for people to help by picking up cancer patients from their home and transporting them to their nearby treatment centers,” said Patient Services Manager Suzanne Greer. “If you have a car and even one hour a month, you can make a real difference in someone's life by becoming a driver."
