Hope for Tomorrow is a national cancer charity dedicated to bringing cancer treatment closer to patients’ homes. Our Mobile Chemotherapy Units (MCU) reduce long distance travel, waiting times and help avoid the stresses and strains of busy oncology centres.
The charity builds, owns and maintains each MCU and provides them to the NHS to operate with their highly trained staff.
Founded by Christine Mills in 2003, after she lost her husband David to cancer, Christine wanted the charity to focus in a practical way to alleviate the additional anxieties of travelling.
The charity built and launched the world’s first MCU in Gloucestershire in 2007. Since then, 10 further units have been launched. They operate in Gloucestershire, Somerset, South Wiltshire, Hampshire, East Kent, Berkshire, Lincolnshire, North Wiltshire, Cornwall, West Suffolk and East Essex. Each unit costs £260,000 to build with the annual cost of keeping each MCU on the road at a minimum of £15,000.
A legacy to Hope for Tomorrow will help us to continue to keep the wheels turning by building and maintaining our MCUs into the future, bringing relief for patients and their families and carers, undergoing the stresses involved in treatment for cancer.
