Weston Park Hospital is the region’s only specialist cancer hospital, providing care for thousands of cancer patients across South Yorkshire, North Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire.
As the only dedicated charity for the hospital, Weston Park Cancer Charity exists to create a better life for those living with and beyond cancer.
The charity is committed to improving cancer treatments and care for patients and raises over £2million every year to fund projects which provide;
