Transportation Assistance

American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery

Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. The American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need. For more information, visit www.cancer.org/Treatment/SupportProgramsServices/road-to-recovery or call 800.227.2345.

The Lymphoma Research Foundation T-Cell Lymphoma Transportation Assistance Fund grant program provides financial assistance to T-cell lymphoma patients (including those with forms of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma) who are uninsured or have adequate medical insurance but struggle to pay for transportation costs (e.g., mileage, parking, tolls, gas, train tickets, etc.) to get to and from treatment. Grants in the amount of $500 will be awarded and applicants can re-apply every 6 months for a total maximum annual award of $1,000. Applicants must: 1) Complete an application and demonstrate financial need; and 2) Be currently undergoing T-cell lymphoma treatment as certified by their physician.
