Beating cancer takes more than medicine. That’s why we do much more than breakthrough research. We also provide free rides to chemo, free lodging near hospitals, a live 24/7 helpline, and that’s just the beginning. We’re attacking cancer in dozens of ways, each of them critical to achieving a world without cancer.
Thank you to all the volunteers, donors, and supporters of the American Cancer Society. It’s because of you that we are able to continue with our lifesaving mission and hopefully one day live in a world free from the pain and suffering of cancer.

Road To Recovery
Thousands of people every year are unable to get to their treatment simply because they don’t have a ride. Our Road To Recovery® program provides free rides and facilitates access to public or commercial transportation – drawing on community volunteers, organizations, and businesses.
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.
1-800-227-2345 - Trained cancer information specialists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer questions about cancer, including information
on diagnosis and treatment, and to link callers with resources in their communities and nationwide.
cancer.org - Our website offers the latest information and news on all types of cancers and helps you find resources, programs, and services in your area and online.
Clinical Trials Matching Service - The American Cancer Society Clinical Trials Matching Service is a free,
confidential program that helps patients, their families, and health care workers find cancer clinical trials most appropriate to a patient’s medical and personal situation. Call 1-800-303-5691 to speak to one of our specialists.
Reach To Recovery
The American Cancer Society Reach To Recovery® program matches people facing or living with breast cancer with trained breast cancer survivors who had a similar diagnosis or treatment plan. Our volunteers offer patients and their families the opportunity to ask questions, talk about their fears and concerns, and express their feelings.
