What we have funded so far

In the last 40 years the charity has been improving the quality of treatment in Derrifiord Hospital by providing equipment, has funded an extension to the waiting area in the Oncology department, has provided funds for research and education but, perhaps, most importantly and fairly uniquely, has assisted cancer sufferers and carers with financial support when financial hardship, as a result of the diagnosis, has been established.
