THE Leukaemia Foundation is urgently calling for volunteer drivers area to help take people living with blood cancer to vital medical appointments.
The Leukaemia Foundation's much-loved patient transport service has been providing people with free transport for more than two decades.
It provides more than 38,000 patient trips each year and last year travelled more the 1,557,779 kilometres – the equivalent of travelling more than 38 times around the world.
Sadly, we currently have limited volunteers available and therefore many people living with blood cancers in the local area are either not able to access the transport service or are on long wait lists.
Residents can help us to continue this vital community service by providing just a few short hours of their time per week, fortnight or per month.
Your free time will make a real difference in the day of a person living with blood cancer.To find out more, call 1800 620 420. BILL PETCH, Leukaemia Foundation CEO
