Racing to fight childhood cancer

Pediatric oncology patients become Ferrari race car drivers at Surrey Memorial Hospital.

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.
