Transportation Program

Teal It Up partners with American Cancer Society to offer funding for their transportation program. We learned that over forty percent of their rides are for breast and ovarian patients. We felt an obligation to help with this essential need some people struggle with.

Please call American Cancer Society for more details at 1-800-227-2345.  It can take several business days to coordinate your ride, so please call well in advance of your appointment.

Meals Delivery

In January 2020, Teal It Up began supporting The Joy Bus’ mission of delivering meals to homebound cancer patients. The Joy Bus is a 100% nonprofit restaurant. Owner (and Teal It Up board member) Jennifer Caraway and her team of volunteers deliver more than nutritious and fresh, home-cooked meals … they also provide conversation, encouragement and a smile for cancer patients undergoing treatment.  As The Joy Bus grows in their scope of service, so will their ability to serve more patients.

Here’s a look at their wonderful service to the Phoenix community:  VIDEO
