Road To Recovery is a transportation service provided by volunteers to assist individuals with cancer to and from their treatment appointments. Due to public safety concerns related to COVID-19, your American Cancer Society is not currently setting up or coordinating patient rides to cancer-related appointments. Please visit us online or by phone to check the status of the Road To Recovery program.
Our Reach To Recovery program has been helping people cope with their breast cancer experience – as early as the first possibility of a diagnosis and continuing for as long as breast cancer remains a personal concern to them. Finding out that you have breast cancer can make you feel overwhelmed, vulnerable, and alone. Suddenly, having to learn about complex medical treatments and choosing the best one can also be stressful. As breast cancer survivors, our volunteers connect with patients by live chat or phone to allow patients to express feelings, talk about concerns, and ask questions of someone who has been there. Most importantly, Reach To Recovery volunteers offer understanding, support, and hope because they themselves have survived breast cancer. Program volunteers do not provide medical advice. Visit us online at http://www.reach.cancer.org or by calling (800) 227-2345 to request a Reach To Recovery visit.
The National Cancer Information Center provides information and support to those facing cancer 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Trained cancer information specialists are available via phone, live chat, and now video chat, providing accurate, up-to-date cancer information to patients, family members, and caregivers and connecting them with valuable services and resources. Call us at (800) 227-2345 to speak with a representative.
