VOLUNTEERS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED IN APRIL
Getting transportation to treatment
Sometimes simply getting to treatment can be difficult. If you can’t afford the cost of travel, or if you are not physically well enough to use public transportation, we can work with you to help find a solution.
Our Wheels of Hope Transportation Service covers 2 programs: Volunteer Driver Provided Program and Family Provided Program. These programs are intended to assist an eligible client and escort (if required) with their short-term travel to attend cancer-specific medical appointments or supportive care services delivered by a professional recognized by Ontario's Health Care System. Patients must declare a financial, physical or emotional need for service. For more information about each program click the 'Need Transportation' tab below.
Thanks to the incredible progress in retinoblastoma research made possible by Canadian Cancer Society funding, my son won’t have to go through what I did.
A home away from home
For cancer patients who must travel a great distance to get to treatment, Canadian Cancer Society lodges offer a welcoming place to stay.
