Volunteer drivers being sought in Fillmore County


Mon, Feb 7th, 2011
Posted in Business Announcements

ROCHESTER, MN - Jan. 11, 2011 - Road to Recovery is a volunteer driver program designed to provide transportation for cancer patients who need help getting to and from their cancer treatments and doctor appointments. The American Cancer Society is looking for volunteers to become Road to Recovery drivers in Fillmore County.

More people are surviving cancer, yet getting to and from treatments and doctors appointments can be very challenging. In fact, transportation is the number one reason patients miss or don't schedule needed appointments.

While family members, friends and coworkers often take time off from work every day to help; transportation is a challenge for most people, especially when the family may already be undergoing a financial crisis due to the cancer. Volunteer drivers can relieve a lot of stress for families that are trying hard to cope.

If you have some free time, a reliable vehicle and an interest in helping patients get to and from treatments and doctor's appointments, volunteer to become a driver. All individuals, as well as community groups and businesses are invited to contact 1.800.227.2345 to participate.
