Volunteer drivers needed to transport cancer patients

From staff reports

Volunteer drivers are needed in the local area for the American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery Program.

The local Cancer Society chapter says transportation can be one of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatments. Volunteers help by providing patients with a much-needed ride, and currently there are two drivers in the local area, the Cancer Society says.

Drivers may use their own vehicle or the Cancer Society van, and all that is required of volunteers is a good driving record, driver’s license and insurance.

Drivers can set their own hours, how many miles they travel and how many people they will transport.

For more information on becoming a driver for the program, people may contact the Cancer Society at (800) 227-2345.

Chris Latchaw, of Rocky Grove, is the coordinator for this area, and she can be contacted at (814) 758-6973 or by email at ctink0611@gmail.com.
