DISCRETIONARY GRANTS

There are approximately 400 NEW breast cancer patients diagnosed each year within the region covered by the Derby City General Hospital.  From time to time we are approached by the Breast Care Nurses to assist some patients who are in financial difficulties due to their diagnosis, prognosis and various treatments they are undergoing. We purchase Supermarket Vouchers and these are handed to the patients.  We have received many "thank you" letters and cards from grateful patients whom we have helped during what is a very traumatic time in their lives.

THERAPIES DAYS

In July 2000 we started holding our Therapy Days, approximately every 3/6 months on a Saturday,  in the Breast Screening Unit at the Derby City General Hospital.  We usually have up to 10 different Therapists attending and they provide 30 minute "taster sessions" of the therapies. Breast cancer patients, partners and family can come along and choose 2 Therapies of their choice.  These Events have proved to be very popular with everyone who attends as it gives patients a chance to talk with other people going or have gone through the same treatment.  It also gives the patients a chance to chat with a Breast Care Nurse who attends the Therapy Days as well as meeting members of our Support Group. Refreshments, rolls and home-made cakes are available on these days too. But.....most of all these Therapy Days provide a "little bit of pampering" which is much appreciated by everyone who comes along. As the Therapists give up their valuable spare time to attend these Events, we do offer some recompense for their loss of earnings on that day and car park charges incurred by them.
