Letter: Help drive Rappahannock cancer patients to their treatments

Having cancer is hard. Finding help shouldn’t be.

One of the toughest challenges people face is getting to and from cancer treatments. They may be too sick to drive themselves, may not have a car or someone to drive them, or may not be able to afford gas or other transportation costs. The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program provides patients with free rides to treatment centers.

That’s where you can help.

The Society is looking for people who can use their own vehicles to drive Rappahannock patients who are undergoing cancer treatment to and from their appointments. Interested volunteers can contact me (540-937-4744 or Hal@Rappahannock.com) to learn more about this program and how to get involved.

A public meeting will be held at the Rappahannock Library on Monday, Feb. 1, at 3 p.m.
