Ospedale di Circolo e Fondazione Macchi
Our primary aim is to fit out the family / visitors room of the Haematology Ward in the Ospedale di Circolo e Fondazione Macchi – http://www.ospedalivarese.net/ – (Luke’s Varese hospital) with sofas, chairs, tables, books, tv, DVDs, artwork, games…anything to help make the visitors of patients more comfortable at what is clearly a tough time for them. Luke’s family spent innumerable hours in that room during Luke’s treatment with only a window to look out of and an old gurney to perch on…it would really benefit any families that are going through the same thing to have a comfortable place from which to support their loved ones.
Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research
Furthermore we would like to donate funds to Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research – leukaemialymphomaresearch.org.uk – a fantastic charity which does great work in this field. We rode the charity’s London Bikeathon earlier this year, which was a great event in London showcasing the work of the charity. The charity already are being very supportive and encouraging of our quest and we hope to offer a healthy donation to them once all those hundreds of miles have been covered!
- THANK YOU! If you have read this blog, kindly donated, or are considering it, then we are very grateful.
Look how happy your support has made Luke!
