Transportation is key to cancer care!
For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to their treatment, our Road To Recoveryﾮ volunteers donate their spare time to give cancer patients a much-needed lift.
Why is this important?
Even the best treatment canﾒt work if a patient canﾒt get there. That is why a successful transportation assistance program can be a tremendous, potentially life-saving asset to your community.
To volunteer, what do you need?
If you own or have regular access to a safe, reliable vehicle, then you are already on the road to volunteering.
But you will also need:
- A good driving record
- A current, valid driverﾒs license
- Proof of adequate automobile insurance
- Completion of the American Cancer Society training course
- Regular access to a computer, laptop, tablet computer
Schedule availability, typically Monday-Saturday.
How do you get started?
First, you will need to submit some basic information to the American Cancer Society. From there a volunteer care specialist will contact you to discuss the program, your expectations, and what you hope to gain from the experience so we can ensure a good fit. Then youﾒll take some required training, which is self-paced and takes around 90 minutes.
From there you will complete a background check and once approved, provide your schedule availability so you can begin being matched to patients needing transportation.
