Giving back through the American Cancer Society

MONTROSE TOWNSHIP (WJRT) -

(12/07/12) - If you're looking to give back this holiday season, there are some easy ways to do it - and it won't take a lot of time or money.

Last year, we profiled Ron Schultz as he volunteered for the American Cancer Society.

After six years, he's still driving cancer patients to their treatments for the Road to Recovery program.

"It's really, really rewarding. It really is. I enjoy it so much. It's something I will do until the day I can't drive anymore," Schultz said.

The Road to Recovery Program is one of many programs through ACS where volunteers like Schultz are needed.

And during this holiday season - giving your time could be the best gift.

"Without volunteers taking them to these appointments, they would probably not be able to make it to these life-saving treatments," said Angie Solinski of the American Cancer Society.

The Look Good Feel Better program that helps lift women's spirits during chemo and after hair loss is another.

"They got me a wig and it was like I walked out of here feeling like a million bucks," said Lois Price, breast cancer survivor.

"Most of the volunteers, we leave it to their discretion what they want to do. If you have an hour a month, absolutely we find something that fits that criteria. Or once or three times a week. Anything that fits your needs," Solinski said.
