God bless the volunteer drivers who take cancer patients to and from appointments

In 2011 I was grateful the program existed. They were always friendly.

Re: “Driven to help cancer patients,” The Leader, March 2.

God bless those who volunteer to be a cancer driver.

In 2011 I was grateful the program existed. I had to be taken from Surrey to Vancouver General Hospital and the cancer clinic every day for three months. I then went through hyperbaric treatments for another two months. My wife doesn’t drive, so I was really stuck.

The treatments were tiring and how great it was to have the driver waiting there to take me home. They were always friendly.

This is a very necessary service and if I had to have paid a small fee I would not have minded.

I donated to the former cancer driver program and I am happy to see the program has been reinstated. Thank you to all you volunteer drivers.
