The American Cancer Society ‘Road to Recovery’ Program

Phone Number: +1.800.227.2345

The Road to Recovery Program "“provides transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer but do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars… Patients must have a cancer diagnosis and be travelling for a cancer-related medical appointment.”

 

Since it can take several business days to arrange for a ride, patients are advised to call well in advance of their appointment date.
