£110raised of £200 target by 16 supporters

    Weʼve raised £110 to support the Phoenix Unit at Sunderland Royal Hospital in their fight against blood cancers

    Funded on Saturday, 7th January 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The Phoenix Unit is a Chemotherapy, Haematology and Infusion Day Unit at Sunderland and is recognised as a leading Cancer Unit and is part of the North of England Cancer Network. They are an overarching “hub” for a range of settings for the provision of chemotherapy service – hospital, home and outreach – depending on a patient’s preference and treatment type.
    It was the Phoenix Unit that treated my Uncle in his last fight against cancer, and who cared for him into his final days. My whole family is going to join in the Boxing Day Dip to raise money for the excellent doctors, nurses, HCAs, and auxilliary staff who continue the daily struggle to treat and eventually cure cancer.

    I'm a HUGE Nerd, and I hate cancer. It's stolen two people from my life so far and it's lurking around like a god damned curse. I'm doing what little I can to fight it, by raising money for charities and hospital units that carry the fight right to cancer's door. With SCIENCE!
