For more than 30 years the American Cancer Society has transported cancer patients from their homes to outpatient treatment at local treatment centers. The patients are driven by local volunteers using their own automobiles. For some patients, we are their only means of getting to treatment. For others, our free program prevents family members from missing work and losing pay. We need more volunteers to help us drive patients. There are times when we don’t have enough drivers to match up with patients needing transportation. See the criteria below to learn more. Even if you can’t drive, click on the links for social media and the news release and then help us spread the word. Post on Facebook, send a tweet, or ask your church or civic organization to put a notice in their newsletter.
