Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people with cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Dr. Stephen Dyar, an Oncologist with Bon Secours Health Center and a volunteer driver, Mr. Richard Sabo joined us in the studio to tell us more about this program. Depending on your individual needs and what’s available in your area, they will:

• Coordinate a ride with an American Cancer Society volunteer driver

• Coordinate a ride with a local organization that has partnered with us to provide transportation

• Refer you to a local resource you can contact for help

In our last segment we spoke with Tony Lee and Mark Meglic of Crime Stoppers of Greenville. This organization offers monetary rewards for anyone calling in anonymous tips for wanted criminals and any criminal activity they may see. They are holding their annual golf classic to raise money to fund this reward program.
