CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

Getting to and from Cancer Appointments

“Getting to and from cancer-related medical appointments can be hard. We’re here to help Canadians who are living with cancer access these vital appointments.”

Since 1989 our Volunteers have provided clients with free rides to and from cancer treatments nearly a million times. Through the generous financial support of BC & Yukon Freemasons, the Freemasons’ Cancer Car Program (FCCP) gives free transportation to and from primary cancer treatments throughout BC.

This amazing program, which offers daily no-charge transportation to / from Kelowna for cancer patients from across the Thompson-Okanagan, is staffed by volunteers from a range of backgrounds. It is operated in observance of Canadian Cancer Society policies and provides important, valued service to those who need it.

The primary recruiting focus is (1) for drivers who work a half-day every two weeks, and (2) for office dispatchers who work a half-day each week.  This program also maintains standby rosters and, while not overly taxing, our objectives are supported by conscientious individuals who enjoy making a difference. Drivers are provided with a vehicle, and do not use their own.
