Cancer patient Gretal Walters has been given rides by Volunteer Cancer Drivers for the past six months. She says she has had three different drivers so far and found them all, including driver Larry Coleman to be ‘very nice.’ She says, “Right now we talk about my treatment. At other times we tell stories about our families.”
Gretal says the service provided by the Volunteer Cancer Drivers is very important.
“I am very that I have this opportunity at my age. I don’t drive anymore. It’s the best thing. If I didn’t have the cancer drivers I would only have a taxi.” Gretal had a family member in Pitt Meadows drive her but he now has cancer and can’t take her anymore. That is why the service by cancer drivers is so important.
