Competing in the Born Survivor Challenge to raise funds for CALLM…

CALLM, standing for Caring for Adults with Leukaemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma was set up in October 2010 to provide the added extras which would make patient’s time in hospital a little more bearable. Each month a committee of staff and patients meet to discuss how money raised through various fundraising ventures should be spent.

Following a patient survey, it was decided that some of the charitable funds would pay for the materials to enable a volunteer beautician to pamper patients once a week. Now Anita Green, a retired district nurse herself, spends half a day with inpatients, with the remainder of the time with those visiting the outpatient clinic for treatment.

Visiting around 16 patients each week she provides manicures and pedicures, as well as hand massages to both male and female patients. Anita’s services are incredibly well received, not only by patients but also by the partners and carers of those treated by Ward 44, enabling them to feel valued along with those they are supporting.
