Ride 2 Survive-Sullivan County, Inc. is a community based volunteer organization whose mission is to assist with transportation expenses for Sullivan County residents or those receiving treatment locally, who are under the care of an oncologist and who have been diagnosed with cancer or pre-malignant conditions.
Transportation expenses will be supplemented to patients receiving cancer treatment at an accredited institution. Every patient will be considered when an application is received.
The following is a statement by the founders of Ride 2 Survive-Sullivan County, Inc., Glorianne Ellison and Kara Passante, explaining how Ride 2 Survive Sullivan County, Inc. came to be.
“ Having both gone through breast cancer in 2011, we understand how the shock and fear of a cancer diagnosis feels. The transportation cost for chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and physician visits will add up and become an unexpected burden. Eleven years later, we and the board of Ride-2-Survive would like to thank you for your continued support in our mission of helping others travel the roads to better health. You have made us what we are today. Ride 2 Survive’s purpose is about more than just money, we are friends helping friends. Our assistance is not only financial, but a gesture of encouragement. Together, we hope to off er a little relief and a lot of support.” – Glorianne Ellison and Kara Passante
