Racing to fight childhood cancer
Jack Shields, 6, was among nine young pediatric oncology patients at Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH) who got a chance to drive miniature electric Ferraris in front of the new Critical Care Tower on Sept. 22.
The racetrack was provided by Friends of Ferrari, a charity that has also donated $5,000 to the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation. The event raised about $10,000 overall, organizers said.
Shields, who lives in Langley, was diagnosed with a form of leukemia on March 11, and is receiving treatment at SMH and the BC Children's Hospital.
