Volunteers Needed to Drive Cancer Patients

By  | 

Lansing, MI - It's called "Road to Recovery," and this program is true to its name.

The American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program pairs cancer patients who need transit to treatment centers with volunteer drivers who can get them there.

And they need help - in the form of more volunteers.

Volunteers can drive as much as their schedules permit.

Volunteer driver Renee Ethridge has been driving cancer patients to chemotherapy sessions and doctors appointments for seven years.

She says at the end of the day, getting to talk with these people brightens her day and she's made lasting friendships.

The same goes for cancer survivor Lynne Lindsay. She says the Road to Recovery rides saved her from a lot of stress after she had to sell her car.
