Cancer Patient Transportation Program

The Volunteer Cancer Drivers Society is a not-for-profit organization providing free, safe, timely and efficient transportation to and from cancer related medical appointments throughout the Lower Mainland.

Our team of volunteer drivers and dispatchers offers peace of mind for patients who may not have the means to drive to and from appointments. The physical, emotional and financial burden is lifted knowing our friendly volunteers are only a call away.

Testimonial

"My Brother Byron needed transport from Surrey to the VGH BMT-AML Unit for Chemo over 4 months. I could not be there for him but your divers were. He was rested, at ease and the kind company put him in a healing frame of mind. You are Angels on Wheels. Thank you is not enough to say." ...Randy Hauer
