Road to Recovery Transportation for Cancer Patients, COVID Suspended
American Cancer Society, National Home Office
Who We Are
The American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery may be able to coordinate a ride with a volunteer to a nonemergency cancer-related medical appointment. This program may be available for people who have cancer and 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. Availability of program not guaranteed for each locale.
Patients must be traveling to an appointment required to begin or complete cancer treatment, or to an appointment for complementary therapy during cancer treatment. Transportation cannot be provided for follow-up appointments after treatment has been completed.
Patients must be ambulatory, able to walk unassisted to and from the vehicle or have an accompanying caregiver to assist. Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a legally responsible adult such as a parent or caregiver. A four business day advance notice is required, not including the date transportation is needed.
