The American Cancer Society is currently looking for volunteer drivers for its Road to Recovery program – a program of volunteers who drive patients to treatment centers and home again.
Road to Recovery volunteers arrange their own schedules. If you have a car and some spare time, you can help someone keep a very important appointment.
All volunteers must have a valid driver’s license and current insurance.
One cancer patient requiring radiation therapy could need anywhere from 20 to 30 trips to treatment in six weeks. A patient receiving chemotherapy might report for treatment weekly for up to a year.
In many cases, a patient is driven to hospitals or clinics by relatives or friends, but even these patients must occasionally seek alternative transportation. That’s where Road to Recovery comes in.
For more details or to become a volunteer driver, call 1.800.227.2345 or visit www.cancer.org/southernmissouri.
