Cancer patients need rides

Cancer treatment often requires a patient to travel to their treatment centre on a daily or weekly basis. The appointments can be lengthy, scheduled at different daily times and are usually during business hours, Monday to Friday. This often presents difficulty for a family where other members are working and already carrying a greater load to ease the burden on the family member with cancer. In this situation, a volunteer driver program can step in and make a tremendous contribution to the well being of an entire family.

The Canadian Cancer Society Volunteer Driver program in Chilliwack is in need of volunteer drivers from theAgassiz area to take patients to and from their treatment.  Training and dispatch are provided. Time commitments are flexible.

If you are interested in further information about this volunteer opportunity, please contact Inge Smith, Volunteer Engagement Coordinator toll free at 1-888-222-2240 Ext 326 or email ismith@bc.cancer.ca.
