Cawston couple raise funds for NNUH appeal

On Saturday 3rd November 2012 Maureen and Tony Lubbock from Cawston, celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary.

Rather than receive presents they asked their friends and family to make donations to the Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) raising a total of £376 for the appeal.

Tony (aged 74) was diagnosed in 2010 with prostate cancer and underwent a total of 37 radiotherapy treatments at the NNUH.

Now fit and well again, when Tony and his wife heard about the NNUH's Targeted Radiotherapy Appeal they wanted to give something back and also help future patients to be able to benefit from targeted radiotherapy, especially as this would mean future prostate cancer patients wouldn’t have to receive as many courses of radiotherapy treatments as he did.

Jenny Tomes, Head of Radiotherapy at the NNUH said, “we are really grateful to Mr & Mrs Lubbock for making this donation to our appeal, every little helps in us being able to bring this treatment closer to home”
