The Eden Unit based at Derriford Hospital has received a special thank you from patient Suzi Arnold on behalf of herself and her husband Stuart.
A usually clean-shaven Stuart raised the money through a six-month sponsored “hair and beard grow” which ended recently with “The Big Shave!”
On presenting the donation for £415.00 Suzi said: “The care I have received from the Eden Unit team, since my diagnosis, has completely turned my life around for the better. The donation is my way of thanking the unit and also highlighting the great work that they do.”
Receiving the donation on behalf of the Unit, Professor Edward Kaminski Consultant Immunologist, said: “We are very grateful to Suzi and Stuart for this donation. The money will be used to purchase additional medical equipment to support the important work on the Eden Unit.”
The Eden Unit opened in 2011 and is home to the Immunology and Allergy Service which diagnoses and treats patients with primary immune deficiency throughout Devon and Cornwall.
