FAMILY RAISES CASH TO THANK CARING MEDICS
SUPPORTERS of World Child Cancer attended a fundraising dinner in at The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.
The dinner was organised by the MacDermid family in appreciation of their grandson Joseph’s survival from the brain cancer he had as a baby. The family’s decision to support the world’s poorest children with cancer was made around Joseph’s bedside shortly after his doctors told them he had a 70 per cent chance of survival.
World Child Cancer treats children in underdeveloped countries where youngsters die without treatment or pain relief. Survival is 10% compared to the UK’s 80%.
