Our 9th Mobile Chemotherapy Unit launched in Cornwall on the 8th May 2015, and was named "Dorothy' in memory of Hope for Tomorrow supporter David Richards CBE's late Grandmother. Initial treatment locations are Bodmin, Penzance and Helston. The team at the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust who operate the Unit say that the County is extremely beautiful, but very rural with poor public transport, and that they anticipate the Unit significantly reducing the County's cancer patients' stress, anxiety and waiting times, in their Day Unit.READ MORE
