Rides Save Lives

Transportation shouldn’t be a roadblock to cancer treatment. Even with help from family and friends, sometimes patients have trouble getting every ride they need. We’re here to help. We have several transportation assistance programs all across the country and can connect you to the best option for your situation.

Get a Ride

Our Road To Recovery program provides rides to and from cancer-related medical appointments for patients who otherwise might not be able to get there. If you or someone you love needs a ride, we can help.  Based on eligibility and availability, we’ll match you with volunteer drivers,  transportation providers working with the American Cancer Society, or other local resources.  READ MORE.

Give a Ride

Our Road To Recovery volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their vehicle so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need. Volunteers determine their own schedule based on availability and preference. Many say that they enjoy helping members of their community and benefit just as much as the patients do! READ MORE.

American Cancer Society Patient Lodging Programs

Getting the best care sometimes means cancer patients must travel away from home. This can place an extra emotional and financial burden on patients and caregivers during an already challenging time. The American Cancer Society is trying to make this difficult situation easier for both cancer patients and their families through our lodging programs.
