The Emmbrook Lodge contributed £1,000 to the launch of the 6th Hope For Tomorrow Mobile Chemotherapy Unit in January this year. This unit “Teddy” is based at The Royal Berks Hospital in Reading. It currently covers the West Berks Community Centre in Thatcham and will shortly also cover the Townlands Community Centre in Henley.
Hope for Tomorrow is a national cancer charity dedicated to bringing cancer treatment closer to patients’ homes. The Charity was set up in December 2003 by Christine Mills after her husband died of Cancer to provide mobile Chemotherapy units across the country. Their Mobile Chemotherapy Units effectively reduce the long distances of travel and waiting times for treatment that patient’s often endure, and also help them to avoid the stresses and strains of busy Oncology Centres.
