Where does my donation go?
Every cancer patient should have access to the treatment they need. Unfortunately, travelling to and from treatment is difficult for many people affected by cancer. Cancer treatment usually occurs over an extended period of time and requires repeated attendance at facilities, which may be far from home. Their treatments can also leave them feeling tired and unwell.
For patients in regional and rural areas with vast distances to cover, this burden is even greater.
Cancer Council NSW established our free Transport to Treatment program in 2008 to help cancer patients access hospitals and treatment centres.
In the last financial year, our caring and passionate volunteer drivers made 28,798 trips to make sure 2,660 patients could get to their treatment.
“Cancer Council NSW and the volunteer drivers couldn’t have been more helpful. The drivers just took all the stress out of it for us. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough – I just think it’s one of the best things ever!” – Helen White, Armidale
We can’t continue this vital service without you. Please pledge your support, and help us continue getting cancer patients to their treatment.
