This GivingTuesday, drive innovation forward.
Honda Canada donated ten (10) 2019 Odysseys to help support and decrease everyday stresses for clients accessing the CCS Wheels of Hope service. As the aging Canadian population continues to grow, so will the need for these types of services, especially as more advance screening programs are being introduced.
What is Wheels of Hope?
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 delivered by a professional recognized by Ontario's Health Care System at a hospital or cancer center. Patients must declare a financial, physical or emotional need for service.

Great progress has been made
Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
