Cancer victim honoured

    A family has raised £300,000 for a new cancer unit named in memory of their son who died from the disease at the age of 19.
    Rob's Day Unit was opened as part of a new £12 million Young Oncology Unit at The Christie hospital in Manchester.

    Robert Broude was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer when he was only 17 years old.

    He died in 2004 after a two-and-a-half-year battle against the disease.

    His mother, Helena Broude, set up the Children's Aid Robert Broude Appeal to raise money for the centre.

    She said: "The new Young Oncology Unit opens to patients in June and will transform treatment and care for teenage and young adult cancer sufferers.

    "Rob's Day Unit is for patients going in for day treatment.

    "When Robert was treated at the hospital there were no out-patient facilities, he used to hate that he would have to stay over for treatment. But he will be glad young people can go in and out on the day.

    "They now have their own area. It is a much warmer environment and that is really important.

    "He would have been really proud."
