We are the largest provider of Mobile Cancer Care to the NHS, but yet we receive no government funding. In 2018, over 14,000 treatments were administered aboard our 12 Mobile Cancer Care Units (MCCUs) across 34 locations, reaching from Cornwall to Yorkshire.
We need your support to continue to treat cancer patients closer to home. It costs £198 per day to run an MCCU, so our total target for this appeal will fund one of our units for 126 days, or our entire fleet for approximately 10 days.
For those of you that know us and have been long standing supporters of Hope for Tomorrow, you will know what a difficult year 2018 was for us. Our wonderful founder, Christine, whose husband's battle with cancer was the inspiration behind our MCCUs, passed away in September. This appeal will keep her vision alive, and enable us to keep the wheels turning on the Mobile Cancer Care project.
Please give generously to this appeal.
If there are surplus funds left over following the closing date of the appeal or the target has not been achieved we will use the money to continue to keep the wheels turning across our fleet where it is needed most.
