Changes coming to CCS transportation program

OPACC has learned that there will be changes to the Canadian Cancer Society's transportation program effective November 1, 2016:

  • The CCS will no longer reimburse families through their Family Provided transportation program who live within 200km of a childhood cancer treatment centre

  • Any child that lives more than 200km away from the treatment centre will still get financial assistance

  • They are instead encouraging families to register for their general Wheels of Hope Volunteer-provided Transportation program

  • Children receiving treatment for cancer may now be accompanied to medical appointments by up to two family members

  • There is no fee for registering a child for transportation through the Wheels of Hope Volunteer Driver program and they are encouraging families to register by calling the Cancer Information Service at 1-888-939-3333

Please contact the Cancer Information Service or your local CCS office if you have any questions. You can find your local office's contact information here.
