Ian Mathers, President of The Rotary Club of Dundee, which has raised over £40000 for various Ninewells appeals over the last 20 years, told Caroline Lindsay that it is the people and communities of Dundee who have really raised the money.
The state-of-the-art Tayside Dermatology, Skin Cancer Treatment and Research Centre opened at Ninewells in 2007 to diagnose, treat and carry out research into skin cancer, largely thanks to the Ninewells Cancer Campaign. In the second of our special features supporting the campaign, Dr Colin Fleming, consultant dermatologist at Ninewells, told Caroline Lindsay how his department has benefited from the appeal.
The Courier is delighted to support the Ninewells Cancer Campaign which hopes to raise £2 million over the next year to create The Jacqui Wood Cancer Centre. In the first of a three-part special, Caroline Lindsay meets those behind the fundraising appeal.
A new centre on the Ninewells Hospital campus that will house more than 100 clinicians and scientists working together to improve cancer treatment and understanding of the disease is to be named after Dr Jacqui Wood.
Aubrey Wood wants to ensure that the campaign continues to go from strength to strength and exists as a fitting tribute to his wife. He has agreed to become vice-chairman of the campaign his wife led for many years, raising an astonishing £17 million so far.
