Denise I'd like to thank you for all the help you've given me, assisting and teaching me new things while I volunteered there at VITAS Hospice to giving me letters of recommendations for nursing programs and scholarships. VITAS helped me create my goal to maybe work in hospice care in the future. I'll be attending UCLA and its nursing program for the fall & I'm very excited! I'm really grateful for all of your help! I would recommend volunteering at VITAS to everyone, it?s a great opportunity. Thanks again. Grace Soriano, VITAS Administrative Volunteer
