Marcia Candy, committee member from Warminster, comments “Cancer is very close to home for our family, which is why we wanted to help build this new cancer centre at the RUH. We chose to support this worthy cause as my husband, William was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2011 and is currently receiving treatment. The Committee members and our family are putting all our energy into this event to make it as successful as possible, as we believe, that everyone who comes along will have a great day out whilst raising funds for this very good cause.
Much of the existing RUH cancer services are located in 70 year-old, inadequate, war time accommodation and are in desperate need of improving. The RUH is planning on providing a state-of-the-art, 21st Century build, fit for purpose.
Building on the excellent track record with the RUH’s last capital project; the Dyson Centre for Neonatal Care, the new Cancer Centre will adopt a holistic approach. Combining; ‘clinical excellence’, a ‘therapeutic environment’, a ‘survivorship model of care’ and ‘proactive research’ – all designed to create a highly beneficial healing environment for the RUH cancer patients and their families.
Jan Witt, Donor Care Officer at the Forever Friends Appeal comments: “It is truly inspiring to meet people in the community who are so passionate about the cause. We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Marcia, William, Claire and Di for getting together and working hard to put on this fabulous event for us and we hope that members of the public will go along to show their support”
Having experienced cancer first hand, Marcia and her family know what its means for patients and their families to be sitting in a welcoming, comfortable and soothing environment. By providing an environment which is holistic, the patient’s well-being and state-of mind is improved. This is essential if we want patients to go through treatment with the least amount of stress.”
