Getting transportation to treatment
Sometimes simply getting to treatment can be a difficult task, especially if you are also dealing with physical or financial challenges or if the treatment centre is far from home. The Canadian Cancer Society Volunteer Driver Program strives to provide access to safe and reliable transportation for people who are receiving active treatment at approved cancer treatment facilities.
If you need help getting to your cancer-related care in Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge and Red Deer, we can work with you to find the best way to get you there.
For more information about how to arrange for a ride, contact the volunteer driver program coordinator for your location.
Calgary and Lethbridge: 1-800-263-6750 (toll-free)
Edmonton and Red Deer: 1-855-477-8998 (toll-free)
We can help you find the support you need. Search our Community Services Locator for more information about what’s available in your community.
