Story

I am having my head shaved to raise money to go towards the installation of a TV aerial on the oncology ward D2 at Southampton General Hospital.
While I stayed with my sister on this ward, I helped to support her while she was critically ill, as she gradually got better the silence of the ward was depressing, so we requested a radio to distract us and keep us entertained.
Fortunately my sister had a side room so I was able to stay over night with her so she was never alone. Others are not this fortunate, they maybe all alone, left with their own thoughts, facing this horrible disease. Having a TV to watch would help distract them for a bit from their own reality.
Unfortunately my sister could be back on this ward again & I would so much like for her stay to be an easy one watching her favourite soaps xx

    I can't thank everyone enough for your donations so far. we have raised the target again and still have 66 days to go., not only do they need a TV aerial installed, they need more fold down beds so family can stay with their loved ones to help comfort & support so they are never alone.. I myself slept on one for 2wks.. they also need recliner chairs for patients who can't stay in bed for whatever reason. Sarah made use of one of these to. They need toys for the dayroom for when family's visit. We can help make a difference.. Thank you xx

    My Dad has spent a fair amount of time at The General over the past year. He'd have been lost without the TV - definitely needed for those staying in for a while.
