Legacy donation plaque unveiled
A bone marrow treatment room has been named the ‘Stanley Irish Room’ after a legacy donation was bequeathed to Tenovus Cancer Care.
The legacy was left by Mrs Marion Irish, wife of Stanley Irish, to Tenovus Cancer Care with the specific wish that a room be named at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital in memory of Mr Stanley Irish.
The specialist treatment room is used to treat patients requiring specific bone marrow treatment which is administered through the spine.
Tenovus Cancer Care have worked with Bournemouth Hospital Charity to enable this to happen, providing a donation to the Charity to support the work of Royal Bournemouth Hospital.
Those in attendance at the unveiling included family members, Jane Stock and Michael Bethall. Eric Guy, executor of Mrs Irish’s will and Rhian Edwards, Director of Research and Support at Tenovus Cancer Care were also present to see the impact of the funds donated.
The group took a tour of the Haematology department based in the charity funded Jigsaw building with Cancer Care Matron, Marie Miller and Debbie Anderson, Head of Fundraising for Bournemouth Hospital Charity.
