Cancer DriveLine provides safe and compassionate transportation to patients receiving any cancer assessment, treatment, surgery or remedial procedures, who live or are staying within the 13 municipalities of southern Vancouver Island.
Public Service Announcement
After much deliberation as a Board and consultations with Cancer Agency and CDL insurance agent, the Cancer DriveLine Society has made the decision to re-open our driving service. Protocols as per Island Health Covid-19 Recommendations for Drivers and Passengers will be in place.
The Cancer DriveLine office will be open on 2 July to book drives by appointment to the Cancer Agency.
More volunteer drivers needed
We appear to be the victims of our own success – calls on our service have reached a new high and we are busier than ever. Consequently, we need more volunteer drivers who live in and around Downtown Victoria, as well as one more permanent dispatcher. These volunteer positions are very rewarding, meeting and talking to new people , as well as knowing that you are really physically helping cancer patients on their difficult journey. Find out more – give us a call now on 778-265-0906.
Cancer DriveLine Society is run entirely by volunteers – there are no paid members of staff. We pay our volunteer drivers a contribution towards the cost of running their vehicles and there are costs for office rent, telephones etc, so donations from members of the public, businesses and clients are our lifeblood. Donations can be made using your Credit Card by pressing the DONATE button on the home page of this site. We are happy to receive cheques mailed to our office, and our drivers carry donation envelopes with them should anyone wish to make cash donations. Cancer DriveLine is a registered charity and tax receipts will be issued at the end of each calendar year for all donations of $25.00 and over.
If you are about to make a donation, please be assured that your hard-earned dollars will help alleviate stress and anxiety for cancer patients making their difficult journey coping with their illness. Our volunteers are there not only to act as their driver, but as moral support and companionship before and after their treatment.
