Breast cancer patients can get free ‘chauffeurs’ to hospital

There is new help for breast cancer patients in San Diego — they can now get their own chauffeur!

Scripps Health tells 10News that it has partnered with “Ford Warriors in Pink” and Lyft, the ride-sharing service, to provide free rides to breast cancer patients who need to get to doctor appointments or chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

“Only those who have had chemo understand – it’s exhausting,” said Beverly Mangerich, Nurse Educator at Scripps Polster Breast Care Center in La Jolla.
