Assisting cancer patients with transportation.

 
Compassion Car Ministry began as an idea of a church member who saw a great need for someone to transport cancer patients to their doctor’s appointments, to their treatments, or to the airport to go to a treatment center. Many cancer patients have difficulty getting to and from the treatments they desperately need.
 
Compassion Car Ministry seeks to provide this service to all residents of Lamar County who have been diagnosed with cancer. Our drivers will not only transport patients, but will also visit and wait with them until the treatment or appointment is done.
 
 

Patient Requirements

Each Patient desiring to take advantage of this ministry must call to schedule the transportation with our scheduling office (770-358-2354). Each trip scheduled will be on first call first serve basis. Once the trip is scheduled, you will receive a confirmation email. 
 
On the day of your trip, please be ready to go when the Compassion Car arrives. The driver will help you if assistance is needed. Be aware that the driver will not allow anyone in the car who is under the influence of alcohol or non- prescription drugs. Also the driver is forbidden to stop for any tobacco products, alcohol or illegal drugs.
