We were delighted to welcome Della Wood to University Hospital recently, where she presented us with a cheque for £220!

Della raised the awesome amount by completing the Coventry Half Marathon in 2021

Della was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2017 and was treated by Mr Al-Omishy, Associate Specialist in Breast Surgery. She has since become a keen runner, and decided to take on a half marathon as a way of saying thank you to all of those involved in her care

Della said “Mr Al-Omishy is my Guardian Angel, without him I wouldn’t be here. The NHS saved my life and this is a way I can say thank you”

Rachael Ryan, Community & Events Fundraiser said “We are so grateful to Della for taking part in the Coventry Half Marathon to raise funds for UHCW Charity. The money she has raised really will make a direct difference to our staff, our patients and their families”

 Fundraisers like Della help make things better for our cancer patients. You can too. Find out more at uhcwcharity.org, or donate here
