Comfort Keepers® of San Diego, CA is excited to announce they are teaming up with the American Cancer Society and the Road To Recovery® program to drive cancer patients to and from their cancer treatments. Comfort Keepers provides quality in-home care to seniors and other adults to ensure the highest quality of life and ongoing independence. Getting to and from medical treatments is one of the greatest concerns many cancer patients face and the Society’s Road to Recovery volunteer program is a critical service to help ensure cancer patients can get to life-saving treatments on a regular basis.
Sheri Harvey & Mathew Fink owners of the Comfort Keepers franchise in San Diego are honored to be a part of the Road To Recovery Program. “It is important to support the communities in which we do business and I cannot think of a more worthwhile endeavor than ensuring access to critical medical treatment,” says Sheri Harvey.
“One cancer patient requiring radiation therapy could need from 20 to 30 trips to treatment in six weeks,” said Chuck Westbrook, senior vice president for cancer control and services for the American Cancer Society. “A patient receiving chemotherapy might report for weekly treatment for several months. In many cases, a patient is driven to hospitals or clinics by relatives or friends, but even these patients must occasionally seek alternative transportation. That’s where the Road To Recovery program comes in. We are grateful for Comfort Keepers’ assistance helping us ensure that cancer patients get to their life-saving treatment.”
“We live our mission statement every day,” says Mathew Fink, and that means we provide our clients with the highest quality of life possible. The American Cancer Society does remarkable work and we are honored to be a part of a program that provides so much to so many.”
