GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The American Cancer Society is looking for volunteers in Kent and Ottawa counties to provide cancer patients with transportation to treatment.

In a Thursday release, the American Cancer Society said many area cancer patients do not have reliable transportation to treatment. It is seeking volunteers for its Road to Recovery program, which gives patients free rides to their appointments.

The American Cancer Society says volunteers must:

  • Have reliable transportation
  • Hold a driver’s license
  • Provide proof of insurance
  • Submit to a background and a department of motor vehicle check
  • Undergo a two-hour training session

Volunteers can choose how many hours they are available.

Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to contact Mindy at the American Cancer Society at 616.551.4066.
