Registered Charity number: 1094677
Founded in 2003 Hope for Tomorrow aims to alleviate some of the stresses and strains associated with receiving treatment for Cancer via the provision of Mobile Chemotherapy Units to NHS Trusts
More about Hope for Tomorrow
In 2007 Hope for Tomorrow launched the world’s first Mobile Chemotherapy Unit. In a unique partnership with the NHS, these state of the art, well equipped Units are built, maintained, and owned by the Charity, and provided to the Trusts to operate with their highly qualified staff.
Hope for Tomorrow’s Mobile Chemotherapy Units allow cancer patients to receive treatment in a restful environment closer to home, saving stressful long distance travel and minimising waiting times.
To date, the Charity has launched 9 Units throughout the UK, and it is their dream to have a Unit operating in every county. Your old car donation will not only help to fund the provision of new Mobile Chemotherapy Units, but will also help to keep the current fleet of Units operational.
Each Unit can travel five days a week throughout their counties of operation, to five treatment locations, and have the capacity to treat between 18 to 20 patients a day.
Additionally, your old car could be used to help fund a Nurses Support Vehicle, one of which is also supplied to each Trust, and allows the nursing team to travel to and from the daily treatment location of the Unit, along with any additional equipment that is required.
You can help Hope for Tomorrow with their Mission: To deliver QUALITY of treatment, which is LOCALLY available, with DIGNITY for patients during their treatment, to give HOPE for tomorrow.
“Fortnightly chemotherapy sessions seem like a treadmill but it is not the vital treatment that causes stress but external irritants like getting there, parking, travel costs, long waiting periods etc. I am self-employed, so time is even more valuable to me than the travelling costs to/from Cheltenham twice every fortnight.
Today I was able to ‘just pop out for chemo’ with a short 5 minute journey to meet my 10am appointment for a two hour chemo session. I was treated by friendly staff who were obviously proud of their new Unit, had an enjoyable experience with other similarly contented patients and was back at my workplace in time to do a full afternoons work.” - Gloucestershire Mobile Chemotherapy Unit patient.
