Mile High Magazine 05/19/19 Road to Recovery Program

Guest: Jen Briggs, American Cancer Society Mission Delivery Manager and Margaret DiUbalo, American Cancer Society Road To Recovery Volunteer The Road to Recovery Program has been around for 30 years.  The program helps cancer patients go to and from their cancer treatments.  Road to Recovery volunteers are able to volunteer and have flexible hours.  Some volunteers drive one way – others drive both directions.  Right now there are 280 volunteers in the state of CO.  They are hoping to get at least 50 new volunteers – but would really love to get 100 new volunteers here soon.  Volunteers say they love the flexibility and relationships that they build with the patients.  Volunteers check in with a website and are able to pick the rides that fit with their schedule and where they live.   www.cancer.org/drive
