CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – An integral part of treating cancer successfully is making sure patients receive their treatments, but transportation arrangements can be a challenge for many.
Kelly Woods, Community Executive for Health Initiatives from the American Cancer Society joined us to share ways you can help.
The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program is in critical need of volunteers from Franklin County, Hampshire County and Hampden County communities to drive local cancer patients to and from their chemotherapy and/or radiation
Road to Recovery provided more than 8,000 rides – free of charge – 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.
If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a volunteer driver for Road to Recovery, please contact:
