PRLog - Jan. 30, 2014 - WEST ALLIS, Wis. -- Recently Chevrolet announced it will donate $1 – up to a total of $1 million – for each Facebook and Twitter user who changes his or her profile to purple, the color of cancer survival, in time for World Cancer Day on Feb. 4.

The Purple Roads initiative will help the American Cancer Society raise money and awareness for its Road to Recovery program, which provides transportation to and from treatment for people who have cancer and do not have a ride. Volunteer drivers donate time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need. Road to Recovery offered nearly 1 million rides last year alone.

“The Purple Roads initiative will drive awareness and support for the Road to Recovery program, which helps patients get the treatment they need, and getting treatment means more survivors,” said Heiser Automotive Group Family Owner, Mary Ann Scaffidi “We hope at least one million people will help celebrate survivors and the people who support them by joining Chevrolet in the Purple Your Profile movement for World Cancer Day. Heiser Chevrolet Cadillac & Heiser Chevrolet are excited to be a part of this imitative. ”

“Lack of transportation can be a significant barrier to staying on track with cancer treatment,” said Lin Mac Master, chief revenue marketing and communications officer for the American Cancer Society. “Patients are often too sick to drive themselves, and the demands of work and family life make it difficult for caregivers  to drive patients to all treatments. The need is even more acute in areas lacking reliable public transportation.

“Chevy’s generous contribution will help the American Cancer Society put cancer patients back on the road to recovery, helping us ensure those in need of a ride to potentially lifesaving treatment get one.”

According to Transportation and Cancer Care, an estimated 3.6 million Americans each year delay or have difficulty obtaining needed medical care because they lack affordable transportation.

The Purple Roads program joins Chevrolet’s ongoing support of the American Cancer Society, which includes the recent $1.1-million donation on behalf of partnering Chevrolet dealers to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and 11 years of in-kind and monetary support for the Detroit Cattle Barons Ball.
