The Christie charity is aiming to raise £23 million to build a new centre in Macclesfield. This will allow Christie patients to receive outstanding cancer care, closer to home. See why real patients, consultants and fundraisers are supporting this project.
Bob Berry, Christie patient“Every minute counts, and if your local Christie centre is in easier reach, it just makes the whole process less stressful.”
Nicola Hodkinson, Christie supporter and former patient“At a new centre with a much smaller catchment area, people’s support networks could be so much stronger.”
Dr Victoria Lavin, Christie consultant"The Christie charity works hand in hand with the hospital to support patients during treatment so they can receive the very best care, benefit from the latest research, the most advanced equipment and support services that make life a little easier."
John Luke, Christie patient“This marvellous facility in Macclesfield is going to make it so much easier to get treatment. You might need it yourself one day.”
Gemma Ellis, Christie patient“I knew I was in the best place for my treatment but having to travel so far was very disruptive.”
Thorneycroft Solicitors, Christie supporters“The Christie at Macclesfield will benefit so many families and individuals in the local area… the more support they receive, the quicker we can help those in need get invaluable treatment and care”
Dr Andrew Sykes, Christie consultant"I never want to see another patient from the Macclesfield area declining treatment because it’s too far to travel."
Craig Reid, Christie fundraiser“It will mean patients can focus all their energies on their treatment and not have the added stress of long travel times.”
