Volunteer driver Harry brings a little fun to little ones and their parents. His contribution to his community is as exceptional as the children he drives to treatment. Harry says...

DRIVING FOR THE VCDS IS A PRIVILEGE

Driving folks to the Cancer Clinic at a time when many feel that they are in their last days on this earth, we as drivers are there to listen to them and encourage them. They are in a stage in life when many of them are at their most vulnerable. However, when you are driving young children, this is a real privilege. Now I can be like a grandpa!

I love listening to them, joking with them, encouraging them. When I have driven a child a couple of times and discover that they like jokes or riddles, I scour the internet for something that I know/hope will bring a smile to their face. And when I bring a smile to the child's face, I know that I have also brought a smile to the parent's face, and I see mom and dad starting to relax.

One of my goals as a VCDS driver is helping children's parents feel at ease knowing they can count on the VCDS for rides to the Cancer Clinic. When I am driving and look in the rearview mirror and notice the adults in the back seat, sleeping or dozing—one knows that all is ok.
It's AWESOME!
Cheers, Harry "
