A look around Newcastle’s amazing new Teenage Cancer unit, a project that has been in the pipeline for a while and one that was talked about back in September, when they first unveiled new and improved facilities for their teenagers. There has been much fundraising towards the completion of the new unit, with £250,000 raised by the Toma Fund, a charity set up in memory of Jordan Thompson, a former patient on the Newcastle ward, whose dream it was to carry on fundraising after he raised his first £10,000, but sadly passed away back in 2007. With everyone amazed at the final product, there is much praise towards the design of the unit, with everyone in agreement that the many features and facilities will make a huge difference to the lives of teenagers and their families.
