                      The van is a converted bus which when outfitted cost $750,000, 19 years ago.
                         A new van will arrive before the end of the year, at a cost of $500,000.

                                             Dr. A, Nancy Larsson, Nurse Lisa, Eve Shaw
Listening to the history of the van and its duties, treating youths since 1996 who have a range of unmet heath-care needs,
are homeless or have other family problems, and are seen to at several locations on the SF Peninsula

      Dr. A. in the back row, middle, encouraging all to contribute on RED NOSE DAY, June 21, 2015,
                            to help children in need all over the world. NBC was the TV sponsor.
Wishing for more/extra storage in the new van so our TOILETRY BAGS have their own place...
not having to be stowed "in between".

                            Saying 'Good BYE', and "Hope to see you when the new van gets christened".
