The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program is currently looking for volunteer drivers throughout all Connecticut communities to transport cancer patients to and from their lifesaving treatments.
Volunteer drivers have provided thousands of cancer patients with rides to their treatment appointments, however patients across Connecticut are now at risk of missing crucial appointments due to lack of transportation. Many need daily or weekly treatment, often over the course of several months, and may be too tired or weak to drive themselves. Some treatments will not allow cancer patients to operate machinery, including a motor vehicle. Other patients do not have family members they can rely on for support or their family may simply not be able to take time away from work.
