Cancer Patient Transportation Van

$885 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 4 months
Cancer patients often have to travel long distances to receive life-saving treatments. Patients in rural areas have few choices, as good public transportation is rare. Statistics show that the further one lives from a treatment center, the greater the chances they will skip or miss a treatment. Not surprising, survivor rates are lower in areas underserved by transportation services. Driving Hope aims to provide safe, comfortable, and affordable long-distance transportation for rural cancer patients. We cannot provide this service without a suitable van. Your donations will help us reach our goal, so we can purchase and customize a van with the unique needs of these patients in mind. (These funds will go directly toward the purchase or customization.)


*It is our goal to expand this service to many underserved areas across the U.S.

Each day, we turn down patients who desperately need our help. Our goal is to have enough funds by October 1, 2018 so we can begin serving patients before the end of the year.
