Each year the UCH Cancer Fund has put reflective heart decorations on the UCH Cancer Centre, Westmoreland Street and Radiotherapy Unit Christmas Trees.
It gives patients, supporters, family, friends and staff an opportunity to take the time to reflect on the year gone by and on those we have shared it with. December is a time to remember how the people in our lives have helped and supported us.
Last December raised over £6,000 with donations for the reflective hearts and the messages were extremely touching. The messages symbolised a special friendship, affection, support, love or a special memory and many took the time to write a personal message which filled the Christmas Tree and became quite a centre attraction. Click here to view previous messages from patients.
This year we want to go beyond last years success and need your support to achieve this. If you would like to write a personal message please come in to the centre and ask for a reflective heart at the support and information centre. Alternatively, you can call the UCH Cancer Fund (0203 447 1884) or visit our justgiving page and write down your message. We can take your message and your donation and place your message on the Tree.
The suggested donation is £5 and the Tree will be up within the 1st week of December for you to view.
Seasons Greetings and thank you again for your support.
