Road Program Helps Cancer Patients with Transportation

Road To Recovery
Charles Cole Memorial Hospital’s Patterson Cancer Care Center and the American Cancer Society have joined forces to offer transportation for cancer patients.

Road to Recovery, new to CCMH, is an American Cancer Society service program that strives to improve the quality of life for patients undergoing cancer care by providing transportation to treatments and medical appointments.

“Despite remarkable progress in the fight against cancer, there are many patients whose greatest challenge isn’t lack of treatment, it’s lack of transportation,” said Lora Cope, ACS cancer control specialist. “The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program helps overcome the transportation challenges many local residents face.”

Volunteer drivers donate their time so patients can receive the treatments they need, Cope said. In many cases, a patient is driven to a hospital or clinic by relatives or friends but even these patients must occasionally seek alternative transportation. That’s where Road to Recovery comes in, she said.

The van was purchased by the hospital’s Heart of Cole community connections and projects committees, which are supported by employee donations, and donated to the ACS for the Road to Recovery program.

“It’s a pleasure to partner again with the American Cancer Society to offer the Road to Recovery program for our patients,” said Ed Hardesty, executive director, medical staff affairs and clinic operations at Charles Cole. “We are grateful to the American Cancer Society and Heart of Cole for making this a reality in our community.”

To arrange transportation, call the ACS Patient Service Center at 800/417-9391.
