Who Are We?
The American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.
Note:  (Someone MUST be available if a patient needs help in and out of the car.)

Volunteers are the drivers and cannot accommodate wheelchairs.  The request must be made at least 5 business days before the ride is needed to give time for staff to find a volunteer who is available.

The Gas Card Reimbursement program is another way of providing financial assistance to cancer patients.  Please call for more information or visit the website.
