At some level, we all have been impacted by cancer. It creates a desire to fight back against it for our family, our friends, our colleagues, our neighbors, ourselves, and even perfect strangers. There are multiple ways to fight the fight. Some of the most profound ways to help are the simplest, and they can also be some of the most vital and powerful.

One of the ways to take the fight to cancer is becoming an American Cancer Society (ACS) volunteer as a certified driver for the Mitchell County “Road to Recovery” program. The “Road to Recovery” is paved by volunteers who provide free transportation for cancer survivors in treatment.

An informational meeting on the program will be held at the First Presbyterian Church in Beloit on January 17 at 2p.m. You will learn how training is handled, what your duties would be as a certified driver, meet some of the current drivers, and get answers to questions from Kansas Regional ACS Staff Partner, Amy Kralicek.

If you are unable to attend the meeting but are interested in becoming a certified driver, contact Pat Cashatt at (785)738-3828 (H) – (785)569-7187 (C)

You may also contact the American Cancer Society Call Center at (800)227-2345.
