Jeff Molby-
Cancer treatment often requires a ton of transportation which is a huge burden on patients and their support systems. The American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program has been helping with this problem for over 40 years. Road to Recovery works like Uber except the driver is a volunteer and the goal is to save a life. Since the pandemic, it has been incredibly short on drivers.
Jeff is a semi-retired empty-nester who took it upon himself to raise the alarm. He's here to show the community how they can help their neighbors in need. Recruiting drivers to get people to their appointments. Recruiting sponsors to help with program overhead (support, dispatching, background checks, etc.) Recruiting cyclists to become the local voice for this cause, and recruiting fans to spread the word and cheer everyone on.
Please help share his story:
