Legacy Giving - Our next ride starts with you.

With your help, we can continue our mission to serve those in need.

Co-Founder and Legacy Donor - George Garrett

One of our founding members, the late John MacInnes cared deeply about the welfare of cancer patients. He often said he wanted our essential service to last for 25 years. That dream is being fulfilled thanks to our generous donors.

As I step down from active work with the Board I am working toward the next goal. Free rides for cancer patients forever. We can achieve that goal through Legacy Giving, leaving something in our Will for the Volunteer Cancer Drivers Society.

I have already made that commitment. Please join me in ensuring that we will always be there for cancer patients and their families.

Our Next Ride Starts With You

Cancer patients and their families face unimaginable challenges. You can support them on their journey

Fighting Cancer is Hard Enough

A gift in your Will ensures future patients have safe, reliable transport to their treatments, allowing them to focus on getting well.

  • 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
  • Missing treatments increases the risk of their cancer recurring.

You can help us drive change.
