Access to Cancer Care

Accessing Cancer Care provides access to transportation for cancer treatment and support for individuals in Penobscot, Piscataquis and Knox counties. Transportation is addressed in several ways (utilizing volunteer drivers, taxis, and agency vehicles) in order to meet each individual’s needs and to provide services as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. The goal is to improve survival rates and quality of life for those accessing the program.
