SUNSET PARK - A group of volunteers with the Sunshine on Wheels organization spreads happiness to young cancer patients at Maimonides Medical Center.

Every Wednesday, Sunshine on Wheels visits the hospital to play with children undergoing treatment. Bonnie Flatow says they're dedicated to helping children cope with fear and anxiety by having fun. Parents of some of the young patients call Sunrise on Wheels a "blessing" for helping their children.

Starting this summer, the program will offer Sunrise Daycamp for cancer patients and their siblings free of charge.

The program at Maimonides Medical Center is funded by the Brooklyn Nets.
