American Cancer Society Las Vegas Needs Volunteer Drivers Now To Drive Patients to Treatments

May 21, 2012 by  

Every day, thousands of Las Vegas cancer patients need a ride to their cancer treatment, but don’t have a means to get there. The American Cancer Society Road to Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer who don’t have a ride there or are unable to drive themselves. The program is already in place but has just 25 drivers enrolled and the current need demands at least 100 to meet all the requests.

“We’re in desperate need of volunteers,” says Debra Armstrong, Quality of Life Manager in las Vegas. “It’s the perfect opportunity for students, members of retirement communities or anyone with just a few hours a week to to step forward. We can raise all the money in the world, but if these patients can’t get to their treatment, we’re not meeting their needs.”

Here’s how the Road to Recovery program works:

  • Volunteer drivers donate their time and resources to take patients to treatment and back home again. Driver must have valid Nevada driver’s license. They must have a safe, reliable vehicle and proof of automobile insurance. Volunteer drivers must have safe driving history and be in good health.
  • Driver coordinators help schedule the rides. Drivers can work whenever its convenient for them, one day week, during the evening or weekends. The commitment is about four hours a week however it works for your schedule.

Call today to become a Las Vegas American Cancer Society Road to Recovery volunteer, by contacting Debra Armstrong, Quality of Life Manager at 702.891.9023 mobile: 702.235.6405.
