Road To Recovery®

We have opened the Road To Recovery® program in several communities across the country and are working to expand to more communities later this year. We have COVID-19 safety precautions in place.

The safety of our patients and volunteers is and always has been our top priority. For other ACS support, please reach out to us via Live Chat, or call our Cancer Helpline at 1-800-227-2345.

Get a ride to cancer treatment

Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery® program provides transportation to and from treatment for people with cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves.

How does the program work?

Depending on your individual needs and what’s available in your area, we may be able to coordinate a ride with an American Cancer Society volunteer driver.

Am I eligible?

Patients must be traveling to a cancer-related medical appointment.

Other eligibility requirements may apply. For example, a caregiver may need to accompany a patient who cannot walk without help, or is under age 18. Contact us to find out what is available in your area, and what the specific requirements are.

It can take several business days to coordinate your ride, so please call us at 1-800-227-2345 well in advance of your appointment date.

How do I become a Road To Recovery® Volunteer?

Volunteering as a Road To Recovery® driver will put you at the heart of the American Cancer Society’s mission and fulfill a critical need for cancer patients. If you own or have regular access to a safe, reliable vehicle, then you’re already on the road to volunteering.

Volunteer drivers must be between the ages of 18 and 84, have a valid driver’s license, pass a background check, and have access to a safe, reliable car.
