      Hi Vick, First I'm sorry your having to look for things that deal with cancer, that sucks in itself. But since you are, there are lots of places to look. first, call the American Cancer Society and explain what your situation is. They have programs to provide partial assistance. Then there are other programs, grants, foundations, local charities, etc. Number for ACS is (800 - 227 - 2345) click on the resources tab at the top of the page, there are some places in your zip code that will come up in that search.

      Others on the site will provide you with links to some other places that they know about. Be patient and check back on this question often, there are a lot of helpful people here that will come through.

      Wish you the best!

      American Cancer Society has some travel related programs that you can use annually. If you haven't contacted them, please do. I found some good relief from the air travel burden I was facing for my upcoming surgery. They are helping me with round trip airline tickets and taxi vouchers which was amzing to me. Someone also recently provided me with this link which has a variety of resources. I am planning to call them this upcoming week for anything that applies. https://www.pparx.org/en/prescription_assistance_programs/co-payment_programs#CC

      This organization actually matches volunteer drivers with patients so they do the driving.


      This link describes qualification and from there you can look around the website, and apply.

      Angel Bus is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to providing compassionate, non-emergency long-distance ground transportation to patients in need. Angel Bus utilizes motor coaches and their volunteer drivers as well as commercial buses. Phone number on website :o)

      Wishing you the Best of Health and Travels,

      As several people hbave said, contact American Cancer Society. I had to call them about something else, and they were really pushing this program. I politely declined as my infusionj center is only 3 miles from my home. Good luck!
