All our fundraising is on behalf of Papworth Hospital's Transplant Unit (Cambridge, England).
Without the Unit at Papworth, our Samantha would not have been able to have the extra years of precious life so valued by all that knew her. I’m sure our situation has been very similar to many other patients. We all owe the team at Papworth so much.
Knowing the extensive travelling that is required, it soon became clear to us that we were more fortunate than others who where in the same situation. As a family we where lucky enough to be able to afford the costs that where involved to travel to and from the hospital and for accommodation, but we know that sometimes others can suffer great hardship to be with their loved ones who are undergoing treatment as they cannot afford the costs to do so.
Our mission is to raise the awareness of organ donation and in particular raise money for those families who are having to cope with a loved one in hospital, who have received or are awaiting a transplant. Having the facilities for loved ones to have a break for a few hours but can be on-call is so important to the welfare of both the patient and visiting family members. We also support transplant units at Papworth Hospital.
Any support given whether large or small will be put to good use in assisting families in their difficult times.
