The Ride to Wellness 

Jean Pimental , from Penquis Lynx talks about a “The Ride to Wellness”.With a grant from the Susan B. Komen of Maine, Penquis Lynx and CancerCare of Maine have joined forces to provide transportation services or mileage reimbursement for medical treatment of breast cancer including diagnostic services, chemotherapy, radiation, support groups and more. Lynx volunteer drivers can pick individuals up at their home and bring them to treatment, or any service that is part of treatment. The program also provides mileage reimbursement at 21 cents per mile for those who transport themselves: also friends or family.One thing that makes this program different from other Lynx programs is there is no income guidelines. If a person lives in Penobscot or Piscataquis County and have need of diagnostic services or treatment of breast cancer they are eligible.For more information call Penquis, 973-3500 or
