Help needed to get cancer patients to treatment appointments

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program in Charlotte is looking for volunteers in the Queen City and surrounding areas. They would help the organization transport local cancer patients in need of rides to and from their cancer treatments.

Sometime these folks don't own a vehicle, or maybe they can't afford a bus ticket. Sometimes they just don't live near a public transportation stop.

Training is provided and the time commitment is based on what you're able to give.

Aliesha Hendrix, a mission delivery specialist with the American Cancer Society, visited WBTV News Sunday Morning to talk about the program and how you can get involved. For more information on becoming a Road To Recovery volunteer anywhere in the greater Charlotte area, please contact Aliesha Hendrix at aliesha.hendrix@cancer.org or 704-685-1753. If you are a patient in need of transportation to your cancer treatment, please contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345.
