Anyone in need of transportation assistance is asked to contact patient and family counselling services at the BC Cancer Agency at 1-250-712-3963 in Kelowna.

The Freemasons have been working in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society to provide free rides to and from primary cancer treatments since 1989.

Prior to the pandemic, the service had been offered in Kamloops and around the Interior, in the Lower Mainland, on Vancouver Island and in Prince George.
