Nancy Sutcliff

Nancy Sutcliffe of North Vancouver was shocked when she was diagnosed with cancer in April 2018.

Her first trip from the North Shore to the cancer clinic at Vancouver Cancer Centre was by taxi – at $85 each way. She said from then on she was taken by Volunteer Cancer drivers. She said, “They were wonderful. They picked me up at the house. They took me to the cancer clinic. They came right up to the floor where I was having the treatment. They waited, they brought me bottles of water. They were just wonderful. Very, very kind people.” Nancy made twenty-five consecutive trips for radiation. Without the volunteer drivers, Nancy said she would either had to take a taxi or use public transportation, adding that it would mean three buses and an hour and a half.

Nancy is encouraging her friends to volunteer. “I tell my friends. This is what you should do.”
