I was just contacted by my friend Melissa who happens to work for the American Cancer Society here in Abilene. She needs help, what she really needs is 'Volunteer Drivers.'  The American Cancer Society 'Road to Recovery' program needs your help. You don't have to be a doctor or a nurse, you just need to own a car, have insurance and be a safe driver. Here is your chance to help out a family member or a friend or maybe a complete stranger that needs help. Here's how you can volunteer.

Do you know someone that has fought or is fighting cancer? Driving your car is the best and fastest way to become an American Cancer volunteer here in Abilene. For most cancer patients, getting to and from doctors offices, treatment facilities, clinics or hospitals  is one of the biggest hurdles for them to conquer. The American Cancer Society needs volunteer drivers to help provide transportation for people right here in the Big Country. You giving a patient a lift in your car goes a long way to helping a cancer patient on their road to recovery. Do you have what it takes to get in the driver’s seat in the fight against cancer?  Attend the driver training course.
