Getting transportation to treatment

The road to recovery needs more drivers.

We strive to provide access to safe and reliable transportation for people receiving active treatment at approved cancer treatment facilities.

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 volunteer driving program in St John’s and metro regions provides transportation for people receiving cancer treatments to and from their cancer-related appointments and offers a friendly, supportive environment along the way.

All of our transportation services are coordinated locally. To find out what’s available in your area, contact your local Society office or call an information specialist at
1-888-939-3333.
