Road to Recovery is a volunteer service program providing transportation for cancer patients to their treatments and home again. Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need. They also provide encouragement and support to patients during their difficult time through this service.
Drivers must have a valid driver’s license. They must also have a safe, reliable vehicle and proof of automobile insurance. Volunteer drivers must have a good driving history and be in good health. Volunteers are reimbursed for the miles the drive.
The training will be held Friday, November 19, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Johnson City Library, located at 501 Nugent Avenue.
RSVP by November 17 by contacting Karen Candelas, at email@example.com or call 512-919-1886 for more information.
Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. Oncology Social Workers report that 77 percent of cancer patients say transportation is one of their biggest needs. The American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people with cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves.
