Letter to the editor: The American Cancer Society is there to help

Thursday, July 24, 2014 - 12:01 am

Dear Northeastern Indiana residents,

Having cancer is hard. Finding help shouldn’t be. That’s why the American Cancer Society offers a number of services to help people with cancer and their families overcome obstacles in their personal cancer fight so they can focus on getting well.

One of the toughest challenges people face is getting to and from much-needed cancer treatments. They may be too sick to drive themselves, may not have a car or someone to drive them, or may not be able to afford gas or other transportation costs.

The American Cancer Society Road To RecoveryŽ program provides patients with free rides to treatment centers, and that’s where you can help.

Your American Cancer Society is looking for people who can use their own vehicles to drive patients who are undergoing cancer treatment to and from their appointments. Interested volunteers can call us at 260-471-3911 to find out more about this important program and how to get involved.

By giving a little of your time, you can help save lives while fulfilling your own.

Melissa Baker, mission delivery specialist for your American Cancer Society
