    Does ACS assist with financial support for gas expense?

    I have been out of work for over a year now and was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer dealing with the mylar sheath (Nervous sysytem).
    As of today, I have completed 10 treatments out of 30 with radiation and having to travel back and forth to Tampa, Florida for treatments and having to live on credit cards.

      I see the phone number was blocked on my post. The phone number is available at cancer.org. I'll try typing it one more time to see if I can get it to post. 800 227 2345

      ACS does give a 50 gift card every 12 months for gas and they do offer a ride program where if u need a ride a volunteer will take you to treatment and pick you up if you are going to a cancer center a few hours away from where u live talk to the about a gas program lost of them have it youjust have to ask We drove 2 hours 1 way for my treatment.

      The acs does have the gas card, here in CA. it pays at $.14 a mile. It helps a lot. Also the cnacer center I go to gives me Chevron Gas cards to help, you have to ask about them.
