Cancer Fighting Fund
Monies donated to our Cancer Fighting Fund enable the hospital to introduce the very latest diagnostic equipment and treatments to benefit patients with any form of cancer. We are now one of only a few hospitals in the country able to carry out some procedures because of the charitable support we continue to receive.
