What is Vision100?
In May 2021, we launched our Vision100 campaign with the purpose of providing emotionally supportive packs, which includes a selection of healthy snacks, drinks, skincare, wellbeing and colouring therapy books to 1000 cancer patients receiving chemotherapy and radiotherapy in London hospitals.
Why we launched it?
Our ambition is to support all in the fight against cancer, whilst we make an increased effort to represent and empower special communities, especially for people of colour as this can potentially be a further barrier to isolation with systemic discrimination hindering patients from getting the medical attention or support they need. It has been a lonely experience during the pandemic over the past year as most patients have been unable to have friends or family in attendance to support their treatment in hospital. These packs are a gesture to support patient wellbeing and aid their road to recovery.
Who is involved?
We received many great donations from our generous corporate sponsors - Deliciously Ella, Graze, Nourish London, Planet Organic, Rutherford Cancer Centres, Trine Oils, Tropic Skincare and Vita Coco. We are donating packs to 1000 patients receiving cancer treatment in six hospitals across London with cancer treatment units. These hospitals are Lewisham, North Middlesex, Royal Marsden, Royal Free, Kingston, and Imperial College.
