The American Cancer Society (ACS) is working to increase access and remove barriers to timely, high-quality cancer care for patients and families.
For cancer patients, transportation and lodging challenges can create a barrier to receiving the treatment they need. Many people need daily or weekly treatment, often over the course of several months. Family and friends may help, but they may not always have the time or resources to provide every ride, which can create a barrier to cancer treatment.
One way the ACS addresses this need is through their ACS transportation and lodging grants which provides funding directly to local health systems and partners so they can deliver assistance directly to their patients. By partnering with health care providers in the Missouri area, ACS can deliver the help when and where it's needed most.
