More Than Just a Ride: Helping Cancer Patients Get to Treatment
Pink Ribbon Girls
Pink Ribbon Girls knows firsthand the heavy burden of fighting cancer has on clients and families. Your support expanded PRG's team to serve their growing client base with transportation assistance!
"Thanks to your generous support of our More Than Just A Ride campaign, we have met our goal and will now be able to hire a new transportation specialist for PRG Central Ohio! This will be invaluable to our clients and their families! We'll be able to provide them with a comfortable ride to and from treatment, ensuring that lack of transportation is no longer a barrier for local cancer patients seeking life-saving treatment."
— Heather Salazar, CEO/President
Pink Ribbon Girls provide so much more than a ride for those battling cancer. The organization’s free, direct services, including meal delivery, rides to treatment, and housecleaning are available to any family in central Ohio facing treatment for breast or gynecological cancer.
Many weeks PRG transportation specialists are already performing at capacity, without any back-up for vacations or sick time. PRG’s local automotive partner, Performance Columbus, generously provided PRG with a third vehicle, and thanks to your support, an additional transportation specialist will be hired to meet the needs of their growing client base. In 2018, PRG provided 1,051 rides to treatment in central Ohio and added 207 clients to its program. In just the first quarter of 2019, 68 new clients joined PRG!
Thank you for helping PRG continue to meet the needs of their clients! We are Better Together!
Balance the fear and uncertainty that breast and women's reproductive cancers bring to individuals and families by providing FREE direct services of healthy meals, housecleaning, rides to treatment, and peer support to our clients throughout Ohio.
