One of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment is transportation.
That’s why the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides patients in need with free rides to treatment. And we need your help.
Volunteers have provided hundreds of thousands of rides for patients, but the need for drivers continues to accelerate.
Please consider becoming a volunteer driver. Volunteers donate their time and can provide as many rides as they want.
All drivers must have:
- A current, valid driver’s license
- A good driving record
- Access to a safe and reliable vehicle
- Regular desktop, laptop, or tablet computer access
- Proof of car insurance
