2015-present: Patient Transportation Services
Fighting cancer involves multiple appointments to different clinics and facilities. When a patient’s capacities are diminished by the effects of chemotherapy or radiation therapy, just getting to and from appointments can be a daunting task. Through a generous grant from the Cancierge Foundation and administered by Cancer Wellness House, UBER provides transportation services for cancer patients, to and from, their treatments, and physician appointments.
