    Sort of a survey ~ How far do you have to travel from home for your treatments?

    How far, one way do you drive?
    Are you going daily, weekly, every 2 weeks, etc?
    Chemo, Radiation, or both?

      I go 107 miles one way. At first it was as often as 3 times in one week but now only once every 3 weeks. I chose to go to a nationally recognized NCI to get access to clinical trials and less invasive surgery. Am very glad.

      Use to get free van rides to & from cancer center every 3 weeks which takes about 15 minutes each way. Took this van service for years & it was extremely helpful & a great service . Recently this service was stopped,. which people depended on. So sad this service has ended making it difficult for transportation. Heard it was stopped by a new administrator at the center to save them money. These treatment costs are extremely expensive so to me there's no reason to stop this most needed service.
