Most recently, The Bloom Appeal, in partnership with Clatterbridge Cancer Centre & Charity has a joint goal of raising £100,000 to establish the Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Centre in the new Clatterbridge Cancer Hospital in the city centre. Our aim is to provide a space dedicated for youngsters to receive their cancer treatment but with access and facilities to the services they need and with space to chill out and socialise with people their own age.
In addition to big goals we constantly strive to help blood cancer patients in Merseyside. Recently we have bought items to help patients on the wards, fridges, heaters and fans. The hospital and University labs have also benefitted from new equipment; qPCR machines, gel imaging systems and bioanalysers. We have sponsored nurses, doctors and researchers to continue their professional development, both nationally and internationally. Christmas is always a busy time as we provide patients with personal extra help and in the new year we look forward to hosting our annual patient-physician forum where patients can ask the consultants and researchers about what’s new in blood cancer.
"The assistance from the Bloom Appeal came at the most demanding stage of my treatment, it enabled us to focus on the treatment and allowed us some breathing space financially.
I especially appreciated that you sent help without an overly complicated application processes or delay."
"I am extremely grateful to the Bloom Appeal for providing me with a grant to enable me to undertake a module in advancing healthcare practice. This will go towards my Advanced Healthcare Practice MSc. The financial support they provide to nursing and healthcare education is invaluable. The application process was quick and easy to do. I would highly recommend the Bloom Appeal to any healthcare professional wishing for a little help with their studies."
