Last year Major donated a loan vehicle to Queensland’s Cancer Council, this was to launch a new initiative called ‘Transport to Treatment in Brisbane’. The Cancer Councils Transport to Treatment is a free volunteer-run transfer service in Brisbane that transports cancer patients from their homes to and from treatment. One of the additional stresses for people with a cancer diagnosis and their families, is travelling to and from treatment so to help ease the burden of transport and parking costs this service was designed to help those affected.
Transport to Treatment has been utilising their two donated vehicles most days, have made about 350 bookings, & are providing assistance for over 12 clients to attend treatment. The cars have travelled 10,135km since November last year across Brisbane’s northern region.
Transport to Treatment is truly making a fundamental difference to the lives of those on their journey with cancer.
