SEVILLE, Spain, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- A Spanish taxi driver who offers free rides to children who have cancer said his cab, with its toys and stickers, is the most kid-friendly in town.

Rafael Segura of Seville said Mickey Mouse, SpongeBob, Hello Kitty and Disney princesses are only a few of the characters adorning the stickers and toys covering the inside of his taxi, ThinkSpain reported Friday.

He said he was inspired by an idea from his 6-year-old daughter, Alicia, last year,

Segura said Alicia is proud of her dad's taxi.

"She wants to show it to all her friends," he said.

Segura said children suffering from cancer get free rides to and from medical appointments.

He said he has also given free rides to low-income families, the elderly and people who have serious illnesses.
