£50 could go towards converting a small hospital office into a quiet room for cancer patients to have private and sensitive conversations with their healthcare team. Here, people could receive news about their diagnosis; cry, scream or laugh, and take the time and space they need to breathe and plan for whatever comes next. You could be making a vital contribution towards the money needed for a project like this.
'A quiet room to meet with patients who are affected by cancer and their family members, is so very important because it allows people to have a quiet and private moment to talk, cry and come to terms with any news they may have been given. It is so important to treat people with dignity and respect rather than have a confidential and emotional conversation in a corridor or public space. We want people to feel valued, listened to and cared for and a quiet room helps us to do that.'
