Tackles4Cancer partners with communities and sports organizations to donate a dollar amount per tackle, sack, point etc... The proceeds are used to assist cancer patients with transportation to and from chemotherapy.
One of the most stressful road blocks that cancer patients face is transportation to treatment. In fact, 20% of cancer patients in the U.S. cancel or delay treatment due to the lack of transportation resources. A patient undergoing radiation and chemotherapy may require 30-40 trips to treatment over a six month period.
Tackles4Cancer 'The Drive' programs provides transportation resources to cancer patients that need assistance getting to and from treatments.
