American Cancer Society program provides rides to cancer patients

There's a local program making it easier for Tri-State cancer patients to get the care they need. 

"We provide rides to cancer patients to and from their treatment who are unable to get their on their own."  Libby Schaffer, American Cancer Society.

Road to Recovery is an American Cancer Society program.  It  has been in Hamilton County for the last year and a half.  They have helped dozens of  patients. 

Callie Sherman from Walnut Hills used the Road to Recovery program when she was getting radiation for breast cancer.  "I  was introduced to road to recovery it was time for me to get my radiation and i knew i had to go five days a week and i knew that was going to be very stressful if i didn't have anyone to take me five days a week," said Sherman.

The American Cancer Society  is in need of volunteer drivers.  Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there.  Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.

Call 1-800-227-2345 for information on the program or to volunteer.
