The American Cancer Society is currently looking for drivers to volunteer their time and their cars, as part of their Road to Recovery program.
It is a service where those drivers transport cancer patients to treatment.
There will be a training for new volunteers to the Road to Recovery program on Thursday, October 23rd, starting at 1:30p.m., at the American Cancer Society office on 3054 McGehee Road in Montgomery.
To volunteer as a Road to Recovery driver, one must have a valid driver's license, access to a vehicle and personal automobile insurance.
Volunteers may drive as frequently as their schedules permit them to transport patients to and from area treatment centers.
The American Cancer Society started this program for many reasons.
Some patients simply do not have a car or may be too ill to drive.
Also, just one patient receiving radiation treatment may require 20 to 30 trips to the hospital in just a few weeks.
Hopefully, Road to Recovery will reduce that burden.
