Road to recovery needs drivers

The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program is having trouble staying on course. This vital patient service program is in need of volunteers who are willing to drive cancer patients to and form their cancer treatments. Volunteers are needed to ensure that all patients are getting the care they desperately need to get back on the Road to Recovery.

You can drive as little or as much as your schedule allows during the regular work week. The American Cancer Society will train the volunteers and the only requirements are to have a good driving record, a valid driver’s license, insurance, a vehicle that is in good working condition and the desire to help in the fight against cancer.

If interested, contact Paige Vollmer at 502-560-6035 or paige.vollmer@cancer.org to receive additional information.
