CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
Getting to and from appointments
Freemasons’ Cancer Car Program
In partnership with the Freemasons of British Columbia and Yukon, we operate the Freemasons’ Cancer Car Program across BC. Volunteer drivers give people with cancer rides to and from their appointments. A driver can pick you up at home and take you to a treatment centre and back again. If you are coming from out of town for treatment, they can also pick you up from the airport, ferry terminal or bus station and take you to one of our lodges or other places to stay near the cancer clinic.
