Red & White Appeal Day 2012: one special day to fundraise for blood cancer patients

first_imgOne in 25 of us will develop leukaemia, myeloma or lymphoma in our lifetime. Red & White Appeal Day 2012: one special day to fundraise for blood cancer patients UHSFT is at the forefront of haematology research with over 30 clinical trials currently taking place to improve haematology treatments.With £1.1million raised to date and £660,000 left to raise, the charity hopes to make the project a reality in 2012. Senior management, clinical leads, doctors and consultants at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHSFT) will be undertaking a 24-hour Bikeathon challenge from 12 noon on Thursday 8th March until 12 noon on Friday 9th March at Southampton General Hospital. Friday 9th March 2012 is Southampton Hospital Charity’s second Red & White Appeal Day.Individuals, communities, schools and businesses are joining together to fundraise.  21 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Red & White Appeal aims to raise £1.76million to create a specialist day treatment unit for patients with leukaemia and other life-threatening blood disorders from across Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Wiltshire, Dorset, West Sussex and the Channel Islands. Howard Lake | 9 March 2012 | News Southampton and the Southern region is turning red and white on Friday 9th March 2012 as individuals, communities and businesses fundraise for Southampton Hospital Charity’s Red & White Appeal Day.The Red & White Appeal aims to raise £1.76 million to create a specialist outpatient treatment unit for patients with leukaemia and other blood disorders from across the region. This comes as haematology consultant Dr Kim Orchard progresses with clinical trials into targeted radiotherapy treatment. Working with the University of Southampton, Dr Orchard leads one of the few centres in the UK to be able to deliver this form of research, aiming to improve treatment response rates but without increasing the toxic side effects associated with chemotherapy and other treatments for blood cancers.There is currently no dedicated facility for haematology patients who need day case treatments such as chemotherapy, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions and stem cell collections. At present, patients who need day case treatments have to go to another area, located at the opposite end of the hospital to the inpatient services.Due to advancements in medicine and a significant increase in the number of patients now receiving treatment, the clinics have also become very overcrowded. Not only is this stressful for patients and nursing staff, but it would also be far better to keep haematology patients, who have low immune systems and can be prone to infection, away from other patient groups.The Red & White Appeal will fund a dedicated day case unit for haematology patients at Southampton General Hospital, which will be co-located with the inpatient facilities, providing continuity of care and a reassuring and settling environment. The new day unit will create an oasis of calm for patients with shared social areas and also private rooms to aid privacy and dignity. Floor to ceiling glass windows will help to flood the area with natural light and revised working hours for staff will allow clinics to be open until 8pm on weekdays and also on Saturday mornings.With £1.1 million raised to date, £660,000 is needed to make the project a reality in 2012. Southampton Hospital Charity’s Red & White Appeal Day on Friday 9th March is the one special day when the city and region is encouraged to join together to show its support for the project.Joan Newman, Bone Marrow Transplant Clinical Nurse Specialist said, “The new treatment unit will make a huge difference to our patients who need to visit the hospital for regular treatments. Please do your bit to support Red & White Appeal Day and help us to provide the best possible environment.”As well as individuals, communities and businesses fundraising for the Appeal, staff at Southampton General Hospital are also supporting the day with departments dressing in red and white and organising various activities to help raise money. Members of senior management, clinical leads, doctors and consultants at UHSFT will be doing their bit to support the day by undertaking a 24-hour Bikeathon challenge from 12 noon on Thursday 8th March until 12 noon on Friday 9th March in Southampton General Hospital’s Spice of Life restaurant.Steve McManus, Chief Operating Officer at UHSFT and 24-hour Bikeathon challenge team member said, “It is important that we all do our bit to help raise the funds needed to build this specialist unit for patients in the care of University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust. We are delighted that the community and businesses across the city and region have come out in force to support Red & White Appeal Day for a second year and we are grateful for all of the support that we have received for the 24-hour Bikeathon challenge.”Carrie Bolt, Fundraising Manager at Southampton Hospital Charity said, “Amongst all the bustle of fundraising it is a sobering fact that one in 25 people will develop leukaemia, myeloma or lymphoma in their lifetime. It is really important to me that we not only provide the very best that we can in terms of medicines and clinicians, but also that we can provide the very best environment where patients can receive treatment. This is why we are working tirelessly to make a new treatment unit a reality for patients as quickly as possible.”Carrie continued, “Over the last 12 months we have gained a huge amount of support from the local community and businesses. This helped to bring us over the £1million mark and now we need another gigantic push to help us towards our goal. We would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who has support the Red & White Appeal so far.”Veryan Grant, Director of Southampton Hospital Charity said, “The Department of Health has funded state of the art haematology inpatient facilities at Southampton General Hospital at a cost of £5million. The charity’s aim is to complete phase two of the project and build the new outpatient facilities alongside. Red & White Appeal Day is the one day special day when everyone can rally together and help support patients who need to come to the hospital for vital treatment for blood cancers.”Veryan continued, “With the support of the city we hope to reach our goal of £1.76million as quickly as possible so that building work can start on the new day unit this year. We hope that people will continue to support the Red & White Appeal and help to make a real difference to the lives of these patients.”For more information about the Red & White Appeal and to make a donation, please visit www.redandwhiteappeal.org or call 023 8079 8881.To sponsor the 24-hour Bikeathon team please visit http://www.justgiving.com/24hrbikeathonTo donate to Red & White Appeal Day just text RRWW10 followed by the amount you would like to give to 70070.

Noi’s return opens up Horned Frogs’ offense in fourth-consecutive home win against Texas

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoFollowing a game Saturday against Kansas State in which the Horned Frogs scored a season-low 55 points, the return of Kouat Noi seemed to do the trick, as the redshirt sophomore scored 15 points and secured 11 rebounds in a 65-61 victory over Texas that maintained TCU’s spotless record at Schollmaier Arena in Big 12 play.“I was feeling really sick the past week, but I am feeling much better,” Noi said after a bout with the flu sidelined him the majority of last week. “It’s good to be back out there and good to get the win.”His 11 rebounds were a career-high, a number that could be chalked up to the sheer amount of size in TCU’s starting five, as four of the Horned Frogs’ five starters stood 6’5 or taller.“He’s [Noi] done it at times, you take out a 6’2 guy and put in a 6’7 guy with experience, it’s good,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said.Noi’s presence as a floor-spacer, shooting 41.5 percent from behind the three-point line, opened up driving lanes for guard Desmond Bane. Bane led all players with 17 points, including two circus lay-ins that gave the Horned Frogs a little bit more separation as they led by eight, 62-54, with 3:53 to play.“Two years ago, I would have been shaking in my shoes in that game, but I have been through it for three years now,” Bane said. “It  feels good with the team looking at you knowing you’ve been here, you’ve done this, so it gives you more confidence to finish down the stretch.”TCU guard Desmond Bane hits a corner, mid-range jumper for two of his game-high 17 points. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoTexas wouldn’t go down quietly, as Longhorn guard Jase Febres answered with five points in a row to cut the deficit to three, 62-59, with two minutes to go.The TCU defense was able to hang on in the end, forcing an errant attempt by Texas guard Elijah Mitrou-Long that hit the top of the backboard to end the game.“We have been trying to get that defense going, that rebounding going, to find ways to win games that way and we did that tonight,” Dixon said. “With the lineup we are going with, we are going to have to do it defensively and make some adjustments offensively.”The starting lineup of Alex Robinson, Bane, Noi, JD Miller, and center Kevin Samuel led to the Horned Frogs dominating the Longhorns on the glass, out-rebounding Texas by nine, 42-33, including 14 offensive rebounds that became 18 TCU points. Samuel led all players with 13 rebounds to go along with eight points, which was key since both teams shot just 41 percent from the field. The Horned Frogs were even worse behind the arc, missing 15 of their 20 three-point attempts.TCU forward JD Miller elevates over Texas center Dylan Osetkowski for a put-back lay-in. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto“It was huge, we’re starting bigger, so I think that’s something that’s going to improve and be common for us when you put Kouat, JD, and Desmond in there,” Dixon said. “It’s probably a by-product of missing some open shots and three’s. If you run good offense and take good shots, you’ll have more opportunities to get offensive rebounds when you miss.”The victory improved the Horned Frogs to 14-4 overall, 3-3 in Big 12 play, and 3-0 at home in conference play.TCU will hit pause on Big 12 action to host the Florida Gators at 11 a.m. Saturday in Schollmaier Arena as part of the Big 12-SEC Challenge. The Horned Frogs are looking for their first win against the SEC under Dixon, as they dropped a home game two years ago against Auburn and a nail-biter on the road against Vanderbilt a year ago.“I think Florida is pretty good team and a pretty good program with a pretty good history,” Dixon said. “I don’t look at it any differently, it’s game we have to win.”<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

In each search police seized journalists’ files, books and computer disks.”We ask you to explain how articles, books and disks seized during the searches could amount to ‘banned material’,” Reporters Without Borders continued in its letter to the prime minister.Calling for the immediate release of the journalists and return of their property, the organisation stressed that the European Court of Human rights viewed searches of homes and offices of journalists as contrary to Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, unless there was a “pressing social need”.Police freed Hatice Özbaris, of Dicle later the same day but all the others remained in custody.

Eleven of these 24 properties have only recently been returned to the Council so may need some work before allocation. But these figures show that the current supply will come nowhere near addressing the crisis,” he told the Limerick Post this week.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The government seem content with pumping taxpayers’ money into the pockets of private landlords through the RAS and HAP schemes, rather than actually providing social and affordable housing for our citizens. The 6 per cent annual increase in rents in Limerick has shown that these schemes are doing very little to solve the crisis, merely facilitating the skyrocketing of rents in the city and county.”He is also adamant that the building of public housing would have a knock-on effect in the private market.“It would lead to affordable rents and affordable purchase prices, and perhaps this wouldn’t be of benefit to the many government TDs who are also landlords, including former Housing Minister Simon Coveney.“I have supported many housing developments including the Hyde Road flats, Edward Street, Southill and many others, and voted to increase the current housing supply, as much as I can as an opposition councillor.“We have plenty of sites throughout the city and county which could be built on; it’s a matter of the government having the will to build,” Cllr O’Ceallaigh concluded.by Alan [email protected] Previous articleMary Black celebrates Jimmy MacNext articleNew social work clinic will make pregnancy less stressful Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie center_img Advertisement Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival TAGSCllr Séighin Ó Ceallaighhomelessnesshousing crisislimerickSinn Fein Twitter NewsLocal NewsNew builds the only way to solve housing crisisBy Alan Jacques – March 30, 2018 932 Facebook Linkedin Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more
