The American Cancer Society is able to provide a limited number of donated flights through Ravn and PenAir, and may be able to provide donated hotel rooms for those seeking treatment out of town or out of state. In addition, we can provide FREE rides to and from treatment, using volunteer drivers in our Road to Recovery Program. 

We also offer Look Good, Feel Better courses at ANMC, Providence Cancer Center, and Regional Hospital. Using licensed estheticians and cosmetologists, we work to give women the skills and tools (including donated makeup kits) to manage their appearance during cancer treatment.

For all these programs and more, contact Jessica Rivera, and we will work to find resources for you, depending on availability and scheduling.
