Our Mobile Cancer Care Unit (MCCU), based at Kent and Canterbury Hospital, Caron, has been caring for the patients of East Kent for over 5 years, and has saved them almost 300,000 miles of travel and has had 4,500 treatments administered onboard.
It is now time for us to care for Caron, and give her a new and upgraded body.
Caron was launched in East Kent in November 2013 by Michael Keating, son of charity patron, Gloria Hunniford, and named in memory of her daughter, Blue Peter presenter Caron Keating, who sadly passed away in 2004 after a battle with breast cancer.

We are raising funds for 'Caron's' new body. If for any reason we can't buy the new body, or there are surplus funds left over following the purchase of the new body, we will use the money to keep the wheels turning across our fleet of Mobile Cancer Care Units . Thank you for your support.
