Drivers needed to assist cancer patients

The Canadian Cancer Society Volunteer Driver program in Surrey is in need of volunteer drivers to take patients to and from their treatments.

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 difficulties for patients and their families. To ease the burden, a volunteer driver program can step in and make a tremendous contribution.

Training and dispatch are provided. Time commitments are flexible.
