Drive people

As a volunteer driver, you will pick up people receiving cancer treatment from their home and take them to their treatment centre. You’ll be there to offer assistance at a time when they need it the most. And when their treatment is done, you’ll make sure they get home safely. With the kindness and support of volunteer drivers, people with cancer can focus on getting through their treatment.

In Saskatchewan our volunteer driver program operates in Regina and Saskatoon.

Interested in becoming a volunteer driver?

Getting to treatment and treatment-related appointments can be a challenge for cancer patients if they are too tired to drive because of treatment, stress about finding a parking spot, need help getting in and out of a vehicle, have no one to drive them, or face financial limitations.

As a volunteer driver, you will make it possible for cancer patients to focus on getting better and fighting cancer instead of worrying about how they will make it to the next appointment. You will also help take some of the strain off family members, who do not have to take time off work to drive loved ones to their appointments.

Stories

A teenaged girl sitting on her bed I was in total shock when I heard the diagnosis of cancer. Cancer to me was an adult’s disease. Being a 13-year-old teenager, it certainly wasn’t even on my radar.
