A greater number of cancer patients at the Bustamante Hospital for Children (BCH) will benefit from the Paediatric Cancer Fund following a donation of $1 million by the FLOW Foundation.

The annual donation was made during a surprise treat hosted by the foundation for the children on December 8.

Foundation chairman Stephen Price, in presenting the cheque, expressed delight at the opportunity to contribute to the welfare of the children.

“We’re happy that we’re able to make this annual donation to the Paediatric Cancer Fund so that the children can continue to get the help they need. The donation is even more critical at this time as parents
grapple with the challenges brought on by the pandemic,” he shared.

Camile Panton, the hospital’s acting Chief Executive Officer, praised the FLOW Foundation’s commitment to maintaining the fund.

“We cannot begin to tell you the difference the fund makes to our patients. Words are simply not enough to express our appreciation,” she stated.
