Craigavon woman Liz raises £1,200 to give back to Mandeville Unit who ‘did everything’ for her

A Craigavon woman who was treated for lymphoma cancer at the Mandeville Unit has raised £1,200 to give back to those who “did everything” for her.

Liz Adair decided to set up a JustGiving page to raise the funds, which she hopes will be spent on providing a new treatment chair for the centre.

She visited the Mandeville Unit at Craigavon Area Hospital on Monday to hand over the cheque – and a hamper – to say thank you to all the staff.

She was treated for lymphoma at the unit over the past six months and during her time there, she underwent treatment with Obinutuzuma and Bendamustine, two types of targeted cancer drugs.

Over the period of six months, she was required to undergo treatment every 28 days.

Thankfully, Liz battled through to the other side, meaning now she just requires regular check-ups every three months.

She said: “All the hard work and effort by these wonderful nurses lead to me completing my treatment, having a positive response and getting me on my way back to full health.

“I couldn’t have done it without them and I’d not be here today without the care they provided me.”
