Driven to fight cancer

Volunteer drivers needed in the Surrey area.

The Canadian Cancer Society is looking for volunteer drivers and dispatchers for our volunteer driver program in Surrey.

Cancer treatment often requires a patient to travel from their home to a treatment centre on a daily or weekly basis.

The appointments can be lengthy, scheduled at different times and are usually during normal business hours.

This can pose a problem for a family where other members are working or carrying a greater load to ease the burden on the family member with cancer.

In this situation, the volunteer driver program can step in and make a tremendous contribution to the well-being of an entire family.

The Canadian Cancer Society volunteer driver program in Surrey needs drivers to take patients to and from their treatments in the Fraser Valley/Greater Vancouver and dispatchers to coordinate the trips.

Full training and support services are provided.

Time commitments are flexible with the program running Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m..

If you are interested in further information, contact Christina Chénard at 604-533-1668, by email at fvrvolengagement@bc.cancer.ca or visit www.cancervol
