Volunteer for The American Cancer Society


CULTURE AND OTHER SENSITIVE TOPICS AS APPROPRIATE. YOU GOT A CHANCE TO HELP OUT A LOT THE PEOPLE WHO NEEDED IN THE TRYING GO, ALL YOU TO DO IS DRIVING. HERE TO TALK ABOUT THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY’S ROAD TO RECOVERY CAMPAIGN, VOLUNTEER DRIVERS ALEX IN CHEVY, TELL US ABOUT THIS PROGRAM HOW PEOPLE CAN GET OF ALL. A VOLUNTEER PROGRAM FOR DRIVERS. IF YOU LOVE TO DRIVE, AND YOU LOVE PEOPLE, IT’S FOR YOU, ALL YOU NEED IS A CAR. A LICENSE AND INSURANCE. A WONDERFUL WAY TO TAKE PATIENTS TO AND FROM THEIR POINTS. THE OTHER PART OF IT IS, THEY’RE GOING TO BE 58,000 PATIENTS WHO COME DOWN WITH CANCER. WE HAVE WONDERFUL TREATMENT FACILITIES, WE WONDERFUL PATIENTS, TO GET ONE TO THE OTHER, IS WHERE THE DRIVERS COME IN. WE NEED TO GET PATIENTS FROM THEIR HOME TO THE THERAPY AND BACK. IT IS SOMETHING WE CAN DO, WE BEEN DOING IT NOW FOR 16 MONTHS. WEISS IS SO IMPORTANT FOR CANCER PATIENTS TO HAVE SOMEONE DRIVE TO AND FROM THERAPY. IF THEY CANNOT GET TO THEIR POINT, THEY CANNOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE INNOVATION AND EVERYTHING ELSE GOOD FOR CURING CANCER. AND THEIR FAMILIES CAN’T TAKE OFF FROM WORK EVERY DAY. SOMETIMES HAVE TO GO FIVE DAYS A WEEK, SO THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS CAN TAKE OFF ALL THE TIME. WE VOLUNTEER DRIVERS WHO ARE AVAILABLE. YOU CAN SET YOUR DATE, YOU CAN SET YOUR TIMES AND DAYS YOU CAN DRIVE. A LOT OF PEOPLE UNDERGOING CANCER TREATMENT OR TOO SICK TO DRIVE HIMSELF. A LOT OF THEM ARE, UNFORTUNATELY, WE’VE SEEN THEM PROGRESS, SOME OF THEM CHEERED AND GRADUATED. THAT IS A WONDERFUL THING. TALK TO ME ABOUT ANY MEMORABLE EXPERIENCES YOU HAVE, D DEVELOP FRIENDSHIPS AS YOU DRIVE BACK AND FORTH. YOU REALLY DO, YOU ASK WHAT YOUR MOST MEMORABLE, THE LAST ONE. THEY ARE SO INSPIRING, SO UP, NOBODY IS NEGATIVE. THE PERSON THEY WORK WITH AND THE PATIENT’S. HAVE BEEN INSPIRING TO US. A SHARE THEIR VICTORIES, YOU RING THE BELL WHEN YOU’RE DONE WITH THE THERAPY. YOU ARE THERE WITH THE PATIENT’S, THEY ANTICIPATE RINGING THE BELL, THERETHROUGH, CANCER FREE. WE ALL CELEBRATE WITH THE. WE BECOME PART OF THE FAMILY AS A RING THE BELL. AND EXPERIENCE THAT CHANGES A LOT OF LIVES, IF SOMEONE NEEDS HELP FROM THE PROGRAM HOW DO THEY GO ABOUT GETTING THE . CALL THE CANCER SOCIETY TELL THEM WHAT THEY NEED, THEY TELL THEM WHAT THEY NEED IF THEY SAY THEY NEED RIGHTS, AND ROAD TO RECOVERY POPSON. ASKED THEM QUESTIONS ABOUT WHERE THEY NEED TO GO, WHEN THEY NEED TO GO, WE DO THE REST. YOU NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS. EVERYDAY WE HAVE TO TURN DOWN, WE GET THE ASSIGNMENTS EVERY NIGHT, IN YOUR FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE. EVERY SINGLE DAY WE HAVE TO TURN DOWN RIGHTS, WITH TO TURN THEM DOWN. NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE TO GET THEM ALL. HOPEFULLY WE CAN GET MORE VOLUNTEERS, IF YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER TO BE A DRIVER REMEMBER YOU NEED TO BE 18 YEARS OLD, HAVE A RELIABLE CAR, AND PROVIDE PROOF OF INSURANCE.
