Virginia Cancer Specialists of Arlington

Story of Service: Virginia Cancer Specialists of Arlington

In Arlington, when low-income uninsured patients need cancer care, they have a wonderful option: Virginia Cancer Specialists of Arlington (VCS) -- winner of the 2016 Governor's Volunteerism Award for Outstanding Small Business.

Story of Service: Alex Vanik

Alex Vanik first got involved with service and volunteerism through Scouts, working his way from Cub Scout to Eagle Scout during his K-12 years.
