BRISTOL MYERS SQUIBB DONATE £750,000 TO SUPPORT HOPE FOR TOMORROW ON THEIR CANCER CARE MISSION
Last year Hope for Tomorrow submitted a funding application to pharmaceutical company, Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) and we are delighted to say that our application was successful and BMS have donated a phenomenal £750,000 to help us expand the reach of our Mobile Cancer Care Units. We have big plans for how the money will be used, funding two additional Mobile Cancer Care Units, one of which will be a very special addition to our fleet. The new units have the potential for us to expand our capacity by up to 30%. This means we could deliver an additional 6,500 cancer treatments on board a Mobile Cancer Care Unit each year. Look out for updates throughout 2021 as we unveil our plans for our Generation 3 mobile cancer care unit, the first of its kind in the world.
