Ipswich: Brave Camille’s �100,000 boost for hospital which helps kids fighting cancer

IPSWICH: A hospital which specialises in treating children with cancer is set to receive a �100,000 boost.

Fundraisers at Camille’s Appeal are set to meet with health chiefs at Addenbrooke’s Hospital today to determine how the money should be spent.

The appeal was set up by Hayley and Martin Shave after their daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2009.

Four-year-old Camille underwent more than 20 operations before she was finally declared free of cancer earlier this year having travelled to America to have proton therapy.

Sarah Richards, chief executive of the charity, said: “We will be meeting at Addenbrooke’s Hospital to discuss how the �100,000 will be used.

“Ideally we would like for it to be spent on rehabilitation services for children who have suffered with brain tumours. It would be great to help with support services.”

Now the keen fundraisers are hoping town residents will get behind a black tie charity event, set to take place at Wherstead Park on December 9.
