Support, Transportation, And Resource Services

for cancer patients living in Amador County

Others Who Make Our Work Possible

Since 2004, Amador STARS has served a vital and ever-expanding role supporting cancer patients and their families living in Amador County.

Amador STARS has an office in Sutter Creek with caring staff to answer questions about local and regional services available to cancer patients and survivors -- from where to find a wig when they are going through chemotherapy, to what support is available locally for patients and survivors. STARS also provides FREE transportation for Amador County residents to radiation and chemotherapy treatments in Sacramento, El Dorado, San Joaquin, Calaveras and Amador Counties. We maintain a fleet of 8 vehicles to transport an average of 30 patients each month to their treatments.

While all our drivers and board members are volunteers, it takes funds to maintain our vehicles (gas, maintenance, registration, insurance). 100% of our funding comes from donations, large and small.

We appreciate your support!
