Despite remarkable progress in the fight against cancer, there are many cancer patients today whose greatest challenge isn’t lack of treatment. Its lack of transportation.

Right now, the American society’s Road to Recovery program needs volunteers from Benton County to drive cancer patients to and from their treatments. At present Sandra Russell and Thomas Kelett are the only people in Benton County that are volunteering to be drivers. There is need for many more.

If you have a car and insurance, safe driving skills, and can drive as little as one morning or after noon a month, you can give someone peace of mind and the chance to get to their potentially life saving treatments.

To volunteer, contact Christy Futrell, the Society’s local staff partner based in West Tennessee at 731-512-5017 or needing transportation assistance or cancer information should contact the American Cancer Society 24 hours a day at 1-800-227-2345.
