WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Every day cancer patients need help getting to and from treatment. You can help provide this life-saving service by becoming a volunteer driver with the American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program. 

The Society's Road to Recovery program offers transportation to cancer patients. Many of them do not own a vehicle, cannot afford the extra gasoline, or do not have access to public transportation. 

Some patients are elderly and unable to drive, and have no family members or friends to provide regular assistance with transportation. 

To attend an Information Session about this program:

Wednesday, June 4th

9:00 am to 11:00 am

American Cancer Society Office
2202 Wrightsville Avenue, Suite 111
Wilmington, North Carolina 28403

RSVP: Rachel.urban@cancer.org or 910.254.4871910.254.4871 extension 0

Requirements to be a Road to Recovery volunteer include a good driving record, a valid driver's license, auto insurance, a vehicle that is in good working condition, and you must be between the ages of 18 and 85. Background and DMV checks are required. Training is provided at no cost.
