Road To Recovery
The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery® program provides free rides to cancer patients to and from cancer-related appointments. Trained volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their personal vehicles to help patients get to the treatments they need. Other
transportation resources may also be available in your area.
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.
Look Good Feel Better
The Look Good Feel Better® program consists of free workshops that help women with cancer manage the appearance-related side effects of treatment. Trained volunteer beauty professionals teach simple techniques
on skin care, makeup, and nail care that help improve the patient’s self-esteem and give her the ability to approach the disease and treatment with greater confidence. This free program is a collaboration of the American Cancer Society, the Personal Care Products Council Foundation,
and the Professional Beauty Association.
