What is the Daisy Appeal?
The Daisy Appeal is funded by local
people and it saves local lives.
Cancer, heart disease and dementia are among the UK’s three biggest killers. Recent statistics suggest half of us will develop cancer during our lifetimes and one in three people will suffer from dementia.
One in six deaths in Hull is due to Coronary Heart Disease.
The Daisy Appeal was established on one fundamental truth – the key to beating these conditions lies in early diagnosis. Quite simply, the sooner they are diagnosed the better the chances of recovery. We have already raised £8m to build a Medical Research Centre at Castle Hill Hospital, near Hull, and are now raising a further £6.8m for a permanent scanning centre on the same site.
Our area needs a permanent scanner because we are currently served by a mobile scanner that visits Hull just twice a week. Once the scanning centre has opened, however, thousand will benefit from having quick access to life-saving diagnostics.
The Daisy Appeal is proud to be a local charity, funded by local people and dedicated to saving lives across Hull, East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Together, we can help make these conditions a thing of the past.
