YDH Breast Cancer Unit Appeal
Why we need your help
Yeovil District Hospital (YDH) are fundraising for a dedicated Breast Cancer Unit and need your help. Their breast care services are currently spread around the hospital, which means that patients need to move around the hospital and undress in various locations. YDH have launched an appeal to raise the £2million needed to change this and develop a dedicated unit in their Women's Hospital, which will allow patients to have a biopsy, mammogram, an ultrasound and a consultation all in one place. There will also be a space for difficult conversations, a dedicated waiting area awat from the rest of the hospital and a meeting room for support groups and wellbeing activities.
Yeo Vale Rotary Club is leading a campaign involving other Rotary clubs in our area (District 1200) to raise money for the Yeovil District Hospital Breast Cancer Unit Appeal.
Our target is to raise £100,000 towards their campaign - monies raised by the local clubs will be enhanced by a significant amount of match-funding from Rotary International.
Patients and Breast Care staff from Yeovil District Hospital have recorded a video which explains why the appeal is so important.
