Komen Northeast Ohio’s Transportation Assistance Program
We at Susan G. Komen® Northeast Ohio understand that transportation to breast cancer treatments is one of the biggest barriers to accessing needed medical care. With that in mind, Komen Northeast Ohio has partnered with UBER Health to provide transportation for breast cancer patients to and from their medical appointments. We will provide one (1) round trip rider per week at no cost to the patient. Patients must call at least 72 hours (3 days) before the appointment to schedule transport.
To schedule your appointment call or email Melanie at 216-292-2873 x118 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Whether you are facing a personal diagnosis or that of a friend or loved one, there are many things you can do and resources available to help you navigate through the complex maze of a breast cancer diagnosis.
Patient navigators are an effective way to keep people in breast cancer treatment by breaking down multiple barriers to care. The Susan G. Komen® Northeast Ohio Patient Navigation Program is built on a foundation of connecting individuals to available resources to break down barriers that could potentially cause delays in care.
