Driver for cancer patients American Cancer Society Make a cancer patient’s journey a little easier by driving them to their appointments. The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program volunteers pick people up from home, bring them to their treatments and back. Patients are often unable to make it to their appointments because they have no way to get there. Drivers are required to have a reliable vehicle, current license, registration and insurance, complete a background check and complete online training. Make a difference by driving for the ACS Road to Recovery program. Contact Lindsay Nelson at 208-422-0841 or [email protected]
