The Queen Elizabeth Hospital - Mcmillan Centre

17th September 2012

 TOTAL RAISED SO FAR: £2,228.00QEH

TARGET £3000

Today I donned mQE - Digy hard hart and florescent jacket and joined the boys from Carter Builders over at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn to turn the first bit of soil ahead of the extension to Macmillan Centre being built. When complete this extension will make such a difference to the patients visiting for cancer treatment, at the moment the space provided for chemotherapy isn’t the largest and it’s only right that those who need to be there should have more comfort in their time of treatment.

You may wonder why they asked me to get the building work under way?  Back at the start of this year listeners to my show very kindly pledged over £2000 to help the hospital acquire two new chemotherapy chairs and replace one other.  Since then money has continued to trickle in and as of today I’d like to re-ignite to campaign to help them get even more money to buy some even better chairs for the patients battling cancer. 

Why should you give them your hard earned money?

Around 1500 new cancer patients are treated at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn every year. Many of these patients have chemotherapy treatment which is carried out in their specialist unit. The Chemotherapy Room currently has eight special ‘chemo’ chairs, from where 25 patients are treated every day. Cancer treatment services in King’s Lynn are recognised nationally as giving patients a ‘Gold Standard’ level for treatment.
