Ride To Wellness Program

Transportation Assistance to Breast Cancer Treatment-Penobscot, Piscataquis, or Knox County Residents
 
If you or someone you know is in need of diagnostic services or has been diagnosed with breast cancer and lives in Penobscot, Piscataquis, or Knox County, the Ride to Wellness program can help ease some of the burden and stress.

Penquis/The Lynx and CancerCare of Maine have joined forces to provide transportation services or mileage reimbursement for medical treatment of breast cancer, including diagnostic services, chemotherapy, radiation, support groups, and more. Lynx volunteer drivers can pick up individuals at their homes and bring them to treatment. The program also provides mileage reimbursement at 21 cents per mile for those who transport themselves; also friends or family who transport.

There is no income level requirement.
The Ride to Wellness Program is funded by Susan G. Komen Maine® and the Maine Cancer Foundation.
