An amazing challenge!

Special thanks goes out to Jean McLaughlin who set out to do 80 challenges in her 80th year - she smashed this and has now done 105 challenges, including aeroplane wing walking and a parachute jump!

Jean’s motivation was to raise monies in memory of her dear daughter and her husband. Jean has now raised nearly £10,000 to be split between her 5 chosen charities and FOJO are truly honoured to benefit from her outstanding efforts.

Being Mindful with new Calm apps for patients

We’re delighted that the Calm app has been kindly donated from Intertrust. The app will be available on all our FOJO iPads, for patients to access during their cancer treatments, providing a calm distraction for anyone of our patients who may be needle-phobic or experiencing anxiety.

Intertrust are also organising some mindfulness classes to support staff dealing with cancer patients. It’s been recognised that our jobs can be quite stressful at times and taking time to take care of their mental health ensures we are at our best to support patients through their cancer journey.

New exercise referral scheme

FOJO has recently funded a 12-week exercise programme run by a level 4 personal trainer. This is available to patients with all types of cancer. Research shows that regular physical exercise can improve patient’s emotional wellbeing and reduce some of the side effects of chemotherapy treatment. The programme offers psychological support, nutritional advice and tools to manage stress and anxiety.

New cold caps

FOJO has recently funded the purchase of 6 new cold caps designed to prevent and help minimise hair loss caused by certain chemotherapy drugs. These new caps have been re-designed to help make them better at minimising hair loss, and patients have reported they’re far more comfortable to wear.

An Iron Man!

Huge thanks to Anthony Tobin who completed an amazing Iron Man challenge in Spain raising just shy of £1,000 for FOJO. He completed the 70.3 mile race in 7 hours and 20 minutes after a gruelling 1.9 km swim. Then followed a 90km bike ride and a 21 km run in 27-degree heat!  What an amazing challenge!
