More people are surviving cancer, yet getting to and from treatments and doctors appointments can be very challenging. In fact, transportation is the number one reason patients miss or don’t schedule needed appointments.
While family members, friends and coworkers often take time off from work every day to help; transportation is a challenge for most people, especially when the family may already be undergoing a financial crisis due to the cancer. Volunteer drivers can relieve a lot of stress for families that are trying hard to cope.
If you have some free time, a reliable vehicle and an interest in helping patients get to and from treatments and doctor’s appointments, volunteer to become a driver. All individuals, as well as community groups and businesses are invited to contact 1.80.582.5152 ext. 8168 to participate.
