WEAR YELLOW NEBRASKA’S MISSION IS TO PROVIDE SERVICE, SUPPORT, AND COMMUNITY FOR NEBRASKA’S CANCER SURVIVORS.


As a cancer survivor, co-founder and past president Mike Buckley  had the idea to start funding cab rides for cancer patients in Omaha who  were without access to transportation, a need he discovered during his  own treatment journey.
Access to rides to and from treatment are essential because patients  are in a weakened state and often times left unable to drive themselves,  which also leaves them vulnerable to lapses in vital medical care. Even  if patients do have family and friends who can help, they aren’t always  available.


The annual Wear Yellow Ride turned into a way to fund vital  transportation by providing free cab rides to cancer patients in need,  and the cab rides remain our primary program to date. A Ride for a Ride.


Since launching our free cab ride program in 2012, Wear Yellow  Nebraska has funded more than $135,000 dollars providing more than  8,500 cab rides to Nebraska cancer patients in need.
