The Freemasons of Cornwall have been supporting The Chestnut Appeal with the main aim of bringing state of the art equipment for prostate cancer diagnosis to the county, and they have helped to make that happen by raising over £60,000 towards the MRi-Fusion Scanner recently installed at Truro Hospital.
Being the most common cancer in men, almost every lodge in Cornwall knows a man who has got or has had prostate cancer, with that in mind they are also keen to raise awareness with their brethren.
This year they’re helping us further by assisting the charity with our new project. This project focuses on increasing capacity for our research nurses; it will mean that men will have more medical trials on offer to them in the region, in particular those men who have been given a terminal diagnosis. Perhaps one of these trials could offer a breakthrough or maybe give a patient more time with loved ones. We aim to increase hours for the research nurses based in Plymouth & Truro.
So thank you to The Freemason of Cornwall for all your support, we couldn’t have done it without you.
