Letter: Care Transit’s ‘angels on wheels’ made cancer treatments possible for one Hope family

Editor,

We would like to give a great big thank you, once again, to Care Transit for making it possible for us to get to the dozens of long-distance appointments necessary to set up and accomplish my husband’s second cancer treatment.

Without you Wanda and Judy, and all your delightful drivers, I don’t know what would have become of him.

Care Transit got us wherever we had to be, on time, and brought us back home safely every time.

We would like to offer heartfelt gratitude to all your drivers. They are like angels with wheels to us! Each and every one of them are so giving, so cheerful, so caring — we couldn’t have gotten through this without all of you, working as a team.

Care Transit is a perfect name for this organization, because ‘care’ is what they do. They give freely and unselfishly of their time to each client.

Special thanks to Cory Lawton, whose great sense of humor, animated conversation and friendship means the world to us.

Thank you all for your help.

Deborah MacBean and Tim Crittenden
