The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program pairs volunteers with cancer patients in need of a ride to their treatments or doctor appointments.
“We identified a need through patients sharing their stories, from phone calls and (from) a community assessment, so we started the program here in Elk County in April,” said Lora Cope, cancer control specialist with the ACS.
