The Road To Recovery® program provides free rides to cancer patients to and from cancer-related medical appointments. Trained volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their personal vehicle to help patients get to the treatments they need.

The Road To Recovery®/TLC Lift For Life program ensures that no cancer patient be forced to miss their treatment appointments because they cannot drive themselves or secure a ride.

The American Cancer Society Hope Lodge® program provides free overnight lodging to cancer patients, and an accompanying caregiver, who have to travel away from home for treatment. We also partner with local hotels across the country to provide free or reduced-rate rooms for cancer patients, and accompanying caregivers, traveling for treatment. Access to both the Hope Lodge® and Hotel Partners program is based on eligibility. Call the local office for details.
