Road to Recovery drivers' meeting Aug. 16

One of the toughest challenges a cancer patient may face is getting to and from treatment.  Patients may be too sick to drive themselves, may not have a car or someone to drive them, or simply cannot afford gasoline.  The American Cancer Society is working to bridge this barrier.

Road to Recovery is a new program to Hancock County and the surrounding area.  Through this project, volunteers are trained to provide patients with free rides to treatment centers.
