If you or a loved one has fought cancer, you know about the challenges.
There are the medical bills, the missed work, and sometimes, the inability to drive. That's where the LIVESTRONG Foundation comes in.
The nonprofit is expanding its services to help people get to and from treatments and appointments. The new LIVESTRONG Transportation Program connects volunteer drivers with patients who need a ride.
"All of the volunteers have been wonderful people,” LIVESTRONG client Cecile Hollyfield said. “Some of them have been people who are cancer survivors themselves, and when coming home from a diagnosis, they'll say, 'Well you know they told me that too, and this is what I've found, and these are some ways of coping with it.'"
Faith in Action Caregivers, the Seton Shivers Center and Car2Go are also involved in the program.
LIVESTRONG has 24 volunteer drivers, says it needs more. Click here for more information.
