We anticipate that Drivers For Survivors is going to be a big asset to the Washington Hospital oncology patients. We are already hearing about the benefits from those that have utilized the service during their pilot program. Patients are commenting how much they like the Drivers For Survivors’ volunteers and the level of service they are receiving. The element that sets Drivers For Survivors apart is how DFS is about building support networks and companionship throughout their treatments. This is a very human approach to a real need. We are excited to watch them grow.

It’s a comforting feeling to be able to depend on Drivers For Survivors for help when a patient desperately needs transportation to their therapy treatments. The volunteers to this program have compassion, commitment, and offer encouragement to the patients that are so in need of kind words at this time in their life. Thank you all very much!!!

The driver I was lucky enough to have quickly became friends. The whole experience was wonderfully satisfactory. God bless them all.
Drivers For Survivors have been helping to fill transportation needs of Washington Radiation Oncology Center patients for the past six months. We are very pleased to be able to offer our patients another great transportation alternative that is reliable and provides them additional support and companionship.

It’s an honor to partner and support an organization who provides free transportation services and supportive companionship to those who are in a time of need. Drivers For Survivors will relieve those in active cancer treatment from some of their daily stresses by providing thoughtful and heartfelt services.
