Vansant

Marjorie "Midge" Vansant, 86, has served nearly 14,000 hours as a volunteer. A Village Improvement Association of Doylestown (VIA) member, she has a combined six years of service on the Doylestown Health Foundation and Doylestown Hospital boards. Midge arrives at 5:45 a.m., twice a week, to volunteer in Same Day Services and the Family Waiting Area of Doylestown Health's Richard A. Reif Heart Institute.

My first volunteer position was . . . "At age 16 as a candy striper in New Jersey."

I volunteer because . . . "My husband has had heart surgery twice. I hope I have something to offer, like a kind word, to calm and support family members who are waiting. It can be scary."

I am proud to be a VIA member because . . . "I like to be in this atmosphere where everybody is contributing to the health of the community."

Whenever I'm away from my work at the hospital . . . "I can't wait to get back."

I'm passionate about . . . "The Friends of the Heart Institute. I feel very fortunate to still have my husband, which motivates me to be involved with raising funds for the needs of the Heart Institute."

Doylestown Health is . . . "A terrific health system. Patients rave about the excellent care and the warm, friendly, helpful staff."

My most meaningful project was . . . "Handwriting cards to family members whose loved ones passed away in hospice care. I have written about 16,000 notes in my 20 years as a hospice volunteer."
