Hello! I can’t believe I’m writing this but I’m doing a sky dive on the 13th April at Langer airfield to raise money for Nottingham University Hospitals Charity - The BIG MRI Appeal and any donation will help make an impact. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
As some of you may be aware my beautiful nephew Oliver Swift has cancer, a brain tumour and has been fighting hard for over a year! The Big MRI appeal is so important to us as a family and I hope you can dig deep and help fund this please
The iMRI machine will be a huge benefit to children who have been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Currently, children often have to endure multiple brain surgeries to remove parts of a tumour. The iMRI machine will allow surgeons to scan their patients during surgery, enabling them to remove as much of the tumour as possible at once. By operating in this way, surgeons will have the best possible chance of curing their patient in the first operation. Families will also avoid an agonising wait between operations, and children will need to undergo fewer courses of general anaesthetic.
