The Treatment Rooms are Fundraising for a new Chemotherapy chair – Sept 2016
We've chosen The Sussex Cancer Fund as its local and we want to buy a new chemo chair for the unit in Brighton.
Our therapist Jenny spent many hours in the existing chairs while undergoing treatment for lung cancer after having had previous treatment for breast cancer. She says a new chair would recline so you could relax but it can also be upright for taking bloods.

As you all know I have been treated for cancer in the last year and am one of the lucky ones who live to fight on. The people who work at the Sussex Cancer Fund are there working hard to support all those who suffer at the hands of this awful disease. They buy essential equipment to make our visits as comfortable as possible during treatment and offer any other assistance that might be needed. Please know that every penny counts and no donation is too small. Please give to this worthy cause and I will walk my socks off for them. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/melissa-williams20

Payton Edgar's Agony supports Sussex Cancer Centre!
Matthew Seal is a trained nurse who has worked in the Sussex Cancer Centre for 15 years. Currently working in the outpatient clinic department, he has also worked in both the chemotherapy department and the inpatient unit, Howard One. Matthew has been writing seriously for 10 years, and in 2011 was a runner up in the Sussex New Writers Awards. It was for this competition that he created the character of food critic, Payton Edgar.
He enjoys writing as a healthy form of escapism and is working on more titles in this series. Matthew will be donating the proceeds of this first book towards obtaining new equipment for the Sussex Cancer Centre and will be available from Amazon.
Book description; Payton Edgar's Agony
London, 1962. Renowned London restaurant critic Payton Edgar is more accustomed to eating from plates than spinning them, and yet this is just what he finds himself doing after agreeing to stand in for the London Evening Clarion's Agony Aunt. While an Aunt of a different kind causes misery for him on the home front, a disturbing letter to the column soon embroils Mr Edgar in a murder plot. Can he solve the mystery of Capstick and Clay before his spinning plates come crashing down?
Sophie Robbins Pentanque day
We hope you can join us for the return of the Robbins Charity Petanque Day - to support The Sussex Cancer Fund. As many of you know, Dad loved petanque, so much so that he actually built a pitch in the garden in Lanzarote and played every day.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the day and if you are wanting to play we would be very grateful if you could please donate £5 per person.
Since 1981 The Sussex Cancer Fund has been giving invaluable assistance to The Sussex Cancer Centre at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton. This is in the form of additional equipment and building improvements for the treatment and comfort of cancer patients attending the department. Dad was one of those patients over many years and was also a trustee for the charity.
