Cancer is hard, getting a ride to treatment shouldn’t be.
Road to Recovery gets patients to treatment. For many cancer patients, a ride is what stands between them and potentially lifesaving treatment. Cancer care often means frequent outpatients, sometimes for days and weeks on end. That is why ACS provides free rides to and from treatment. We are available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help people find a ride when they need it most.
More than 131,000 Floridians will be diagnosed with cancer this year, and many will need our help to access the care they need. In 2018, we provided more than 50,000 rides to Florida patients. Unfortunately, we couldn’t fulfill about 25,00 requests for rides. With additional funding resources we could serve even more patients and fulfill the ever-growing demand for rides.
For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 27% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
