Sometimes simply getting to treatment can be difficult. If you can’t afford the cost of travel, or if you are not physically well enough to use public transportation, we can work with you to help find a solution.
Our Wheels of Hope Transportation Service is a Volunteer Driver Provided Program. This program is intended to assist an eligible client and escort (if required) with their short-term travel to attend cancer-specific medical appointments delivered by a professional recognized by Ontario’s Health Care System. Patients must declare a financial, physical or emotional need for service.
Since the mid 1950’s, the Society has provided volunteer driver transportation assistance for people with cancer.
Volunteer drivers provide return trips for patients from their home to treatment centres. They offer friendly support and kindness at a time when patients need it most.
New patients who register for volunteer driver provided transportation will be required to pay an annual registration fee. If you are unable to pay the full registration fee, you may be eligible for assistance through our compassionate program.
