Hope for Tomorrow was founded by Christine Mills in December 2003, after she lost her husband David to cancer. One of the many stresses the couple endured was travelling from their home to the Oncology Centre – a journey of nearly 60 miles.
Christine wanted the Charity to focus in a practical way, to alleviate the additional anxieties of travelling. She met Dr Sean Elyan, Consultant Oncologist and Medical Director of the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and discovered that he had a vision to bring chemotherapy closer to the patient.
This inspired her to make the dream into a reality and the Charity initially raised £150,000 to build the world’s first Mobile Chemotherapy Unit.
