Nurse makes £100 donation to cancer team

A Nurse has continued the tradition she started with her late husband by donating money to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s cancer team instead of sending Christmas cards.

Practice Development Nurse Ragna Page has presented the cheque to Matron Dawn Slack for the hospital’s Cancer Care and Treatment Fund.

Norfolk farmer and businessman Mr Page sadly lost his battle with prostate cancer on Christmas Day 2016.

Mrs Page said: “Don was cared for wonderfully by the team so I wanted to do something to thank the team.”

The couple began donating money to the unit instead of sending Christmas cards shortly after Don’s diagnosis.

Matron Slack added: “We would like to thank Ragna for her kind contribution and it will be used for the benefit of cancer patients.”
