Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to potentially life-saving treatment, but many don't have a way to get there.
The American Cancer Society stands up to cancer by giving those patients free transportation.
Each week, J.D. Burse volunteers his time and his van to drive cancer patients to their treatment.
Barbara Wyatt's treatment? Radiation. Every day for 45 days.
She says with J.D. picking her up - she has one less thing to worry about.
'To wake up in the morning and know you've got to be to an appointment on time, knowing that person knows exactly what time and where to take you - that is a help," said Wyatt.
And J.D. knows what that means to patients. He was diagnosed with Leukemia just last year. He also knows time in his van is more than just a ride for some.
"I play my church music and they enjoy that and I watch them and they pat their feet to the music because it's something soothing", he said. "Some of them get in the car and tell me all their problems..from A to Z," added J.D. "I just listen."
Serese Cole, 'It's called Road to Recovery and thanks to volunteers like J.D. more than 100 patients in the Omaha and Lincoln area were able to get to the critical cancer care they need -this year alone.
Barbara says without it, she's not sure how she would have made it to her appointments
"It means a lot to me."
J.D. Said, "I feel good about it because it's something I've been doing all my life - helping people."
