Financial industry veteran Jeffrey (“Jeff”) Steven Drobny maintains ties to the communities of Scottsdale, AZ, where he owns a second home, and Minneapolis, MN, where he oversees operations at Garda Capital Partners. Active in these communities, Jeff Drobny enjoys contributing not only to local charitable organizations, but national ones, too.

As many Americans are aware, the American Cancer Society (ACS) funds cancer research through events like Relay for Life. However, some of the day-to-day practical services that ACS provides remain less well known.

The Road to Recovery program, for example, offers free transportation to people living with cancer who are unable to get to treatment by themselves. Some of these patients lack access to vehicles, while others are unable to drive because of their health.

Volunteers offer their time and vehicle to transport patients in need to and from life-saving treatment sessions. They are also able to transport caregivers as well as the parents of children living with cancer. Anyone who needs a ride to treatment is welcome to call ACS at (800) 227-2345 to be matched with a local volunteer.
