Volunteer drivers needed by cancer patients


Volunteer drivers needed by cancer patientsRegion – The American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program is in need of volunteers from central Massachusetts communities to drive local cancer patients to and from their chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments.

An integral part of treating cancer successfully is making sure patients receive their treatments, but many find making transportation arrangements a challenge. The American Cancer Society provided more than 8,000 rides to cancer patients in Massachusetts last year, but needs new volunteer drivers to keep up with the demand for transportation.

Volunteers use their own vehicle and set their own schedule. Treatment appointments take place weekdays, primarily during business hours. Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer driver for Road to Recovery, can contact Michele Dilley in the American Cancer Society's Worcester office at 1-508-270-4644 or [email protected].
