Hope for Tomorrow – Driving Cancer Care Forward

“Cancer treatment causes sheer fatigue, it’s like someone has taken your batteries out. The stress and anxiety of getting to appointments, inevitable long waiting times in hospital, all whilst someone just wants to spend precious time with those they love often means that people’s lives are dictated by their treatment.” Liz Murray, retired Oncology Consultant

Cancer affects us all. It may be us who’s been touched, close friends or family members.

We’ve made it our mission to make a difference to the way cancer treatment is delivered. Our units help patients to fit their treatment in to their lives, not the other way round.

We bring our fleet of mobile cancer care units into the heart of communities, and work closely with NHS Trusts to help as many people as possible.

Being in such a calm environment, away from the constantly beeping machines and busy hospitals was much less stressful and helped to get us all through yet another treatment.” Rachel, Hope for Tomorrow patient

Units are easily accessible and park in large, convenient spaces like a supermarket or local doctors’ car park. Importantly, cancer care is being delivered closer to patients – whether that be their home, work or their community.

Hope for Tomorrow receive no government funding and rely solely on donations from our generous supporters to be able to deliver these vital units.

How our supporters make a difference:

£10 could pay for 1 patient to receive treatment on board a unit. This could mean they wouldn’t miss out on taking their children to school.

£30 could enable 7 patients to have their PICC line cleaned. Having this done closer to them means their workday isn’t disrupted.

£212 could ‘pay for a day’. This could mean 20 patients have more time with their loved ones instead of being sat in a hospital, waiting for their treatment.

“The difference that the mobile units make to cancer patients is immeasurable and with 1 in 2 of us likely to receive a cancer diagnosis in our lifetime, it is vitally important, now more than ever before, that we continue supporting Hope for Tomorrow. I really can’t put into words how grateful I am to everyone who’s been part of Team Hope and to all who support this incredible charity. Just saying ‘thank you’ will never be enough.” Rachel
