The James Tudor Foundation Awards £10,000

We are delighted to receive The James Tudor Foundation's recognition and support of our work to train doctors in the techniques of RFA. Following their recent Trustees Meeting, The Cancer Thermal Ablation Fund has been awarded £10,000 which will cover half the cost of a doctor's training at University College Hospital London.
Radiofrequency ablation is an important part of the overall treatment for certain cancer patients. Alongside treatment to the kidney and liver, RFA for treating lung tumours is now also increasing more and more. However, the procedure is still not widely available or offered. Our aim to train more doctors is vital to changing that.
We record our gratitude to The James Tudor Foundation.
