Dear supporters and friends of the Volunteer Cancer Drivers Society, 

My name is Andréa and this is my story. On December 2nd 2018, I received the kind of news that one dreads: Stage IV cancer. I was given just days to live. Shock, disbelief and fear swirled through my mind. I will never forget the trauma l experienced during those early days. My life (and that of my family’s) was irrevocably changed. 

It has been almost three years since that fateful day. I am incredibly thankful that I am still here, alive and living a full and meaningful life. My cancer treatment has been ongoing, with chemotherapy, radiation, and more medical appointments than I can count. This is the reality for those of us living with cancer: our lives revolve around our treatments and medical tests. While we are extremely grateful for the healthcare available to us, it is often a challenge to make our way to our many appointments. 

During one particularly difficult course of chemotherapy I learned about the Volunteer Cancer Drivers Society (VCDS). I knew I could not always rely on friends or family to drive me and I was often in no fit state to drive myself. I decided to try the free services of the VCDS. I will always remember my first volunteer driver, Jim. He was professional, kind, courteous, and understanding. I was in excellent hands getting to and from my treatments. I continued to avail myself of the VCDS for several months until my energy improved, and in that time, I learned how essential this service is for our communities. So many cancer patients have no support system or the means of getting to their medical appointments. 

My cancer journey is ongoing, but my positive experience with the VCDS led me to join their Board. That way, I can give of my time and energy to a cause that changes lives for the better.

As we usher in the holiday season at the end of yet another unusual COVID-year, I want to acknowledge the outstanding support we receive every month from many of our volunteers: the caring comforting time they share and their many donations. And today I want to ask that you continue to sustain the VCDS with a donation or legacy gift. Your support is deeply appreciated by all of us in the VCDS family – the Board of Directors, our dedicated volunteers and most importantly the many cancer patients we serve.
