Just a little note to say a huge thank you to you all, to your friendly and professional support over the recent months. Having chemo is not the best experience in life but the way you all have looked after me and your friendly smiley faces, and your many kind words has made this challenging journey so much easier to cope with. You are all very lovely people and a great team.
Thank you for everything, lots of love Wendy x x
The Jersey Oncology Unit coordinates the care of patients with all types of cancers. Friends of Jersey Oncology (FOJO) was formed in 2012 to raise funds for the purchase of non- States provided equipment and services for the Jersey Oncology Unit.
Funds raised provide additional care, comfort and support for the Units patients, families and loved ones. We are committed to ensuring that the charity’s funds will always be utilised in the most appropriate and effective way.
How do we help?
The oncology unit in Jersey currently treats around 60 new patients a month, as well as existing patients and those requiring ongoing care.
A cancer diagnosis is an unknown entity, and patients are often filled with fear and extreme anxiety. Whilst we can’t change the circumstances, we can administer strong, powerful medications to eradicate, reduce and control a variety of cancers for those as young as 20 through to older aged patients. Our aim is to make this journey as comfortable and relaxed as possible to help make chemotherapy a little easier to cope with.
Our vision for the charity’s future is to ensure all patients, their families and loved ones have access to high quality information, support and the best possible treatment. With the help and support of the Jersey public we are dedicated to achieving our goals and making a real and meaningful difference for those in the island affected by cancer.
