Isle of Wight Endocrine Information Stand - Sue Cooper's Legacy
Earlier this week our Head of Fundraising, Jay Sheppard, met with our Solent Support Group. Following a generous gift left in the will of late member, Sue Cooper, we were able to present an information stand to the Endocrine Department at St Mary’s Hospital on the Isle of Wight.
This information stand provides a range of our publications, and will support pituitary patients attending the clinic.
We are so grateful to The Pituitary Foundation and Sue Cooper for providing the information stand. It’s only been available for a few days, and we are already seeing the positive impact that it is having. I saw a patient who had been very traumatised after having emergency surgery on a pituitary tumour two weeks ago. It was so helpful to be able to discuss The Pituitary Foundation as a source of support, and the fact that she was not alone and give her some information booklets from the stand. It’s a great way to raise awareness of The Foundation for pituitary patients and about pituitary conditions for others attending the clinics.

Gifts in Wills play a vital role in helping our charity to grow and evolve as we strive to support more and more pituitary patients and raise awareness of pituitary conditions. We are extremely grateful to Sue Cooper for her generousity.
Members of The Pituitary Foundation are eligible for a free Will, which would be worth £120.
