Prior to my being diagnosed I had heard about the cancer centre but did not fully understand what it offered in the way of specialist cancer treatment.
The treatment I have since received has been totally invaluable, and for the centre to be located centrally, in Shrewsbury, is so beneficial to cancer patients from all over Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, and Mid Wales.
Although daunting to be diagnosed, and subsequently receive chemotherapy treatment, it was so important that I be treated at Shrewsbury, and be looked after by such a highly professional and friendly team of Doctors and Nurses.
During this time, I made my Will. I felt that by leaving a gift in my Will to Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, in recognition of the incredible help and treatment that the centre had given me during my illness, would in turn help other cancer patients in the future.
The centre first opened in 1979 and we need to ensure that it continues to be here in Shrewsbury to provide the specialist support and care for fellow cancer patients now and in the future.
