Transportation to Cancer Appointments

Organizing transportation to cancer appointments can be difficult. We recommend first asking family, friends and supporters to help drive you to your appointments. You can also contact your health insurance provider to see if they offer any transportation benefits. Another helpful resource would be to talk with your oncology social worker or nurse navigator to ask for help.

In addition to these suggestions, we’ve compiled a list of other transportation options that are available to our cancer patients:
