Freemasons Cheque Presentation

A Special Thank You

In 2021, when the Freemasons Grand Lodge of British Columbia and Yukon decided to move away from transporting cancer patients in Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby, they looked to VCDS to expand its operation to those cities. VCDS accepted that challenge, and these areas have now become some of our busiest regions. In 2023, we completed over 11,500 patient trips in these cities.

Significant financial support from the Freemasons over the past three years was vital to the success of this expansion of our service to cancer patients in the Lower Mainland, and we are extremely grateful to the Freemasons for their generosity.

As a volunteer-run organization, we are entirely dependent on donors like the Freemasons and those named below, who enable us to provide the much-needed and growing demand for complimentary rides to and from cancer treatment appointments. The commitment and dedication of our volunteers fuels our passion for our patients, and the generosity of our donors literally keeps our drivers on the road.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone listed below, and thank them for being part of the VCDS family of supporters.
