Forest Holme Hospice
Forest Holme Hospice in Dorset were delighted to be awarded a grant of £13,619. Our donation has enabled the charity to install specialised laser therapy equipment for cancer patients which reduces the amount of pain via photobiomodulation (light application) procedures.
Hannah O'Hare, Development Manager at Forest Holme Hospice Charity explains: "We are overwhelmed with the generous donation made by the Morrisons Foundation. This money will fund laser therapy equipment for cancer patients and enable us to treat and prevent the painful side effects (oral mucositis) of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.”
“Oral mucositis is debilitating and can lead to several problems, including pain, nutritional problems, and increased risk of infection due to open sores. The laser treatment known as Photobiomodulation can effectively treat the symptoms of oral mucositis as well as being preventative."
