2014 Events


The American Cancer Society's patient service program, Road to Recovery, is available for residents in Trigg County. The Road To Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer and do not have a ride, or are unable to drive themselves.  Local volunteers are trained and screened by the ACS and donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.  For more information or to make arrangements for transportation, call 1-800-227-2345.  If you are interested in being a Road To Recovery volunteer, contact the same number. Information:  www.cancer.org, or call the American Cancer Society at 800-227-2345.  Why We Fundraise:  www.relayforlife.org/Learn/WhyWeFundraise/index
