As part of our work with CME Medical, Trinity PR recently launched a local media campaign to help raise awareness of Emma Parkins’ fundraising for a local nursing home in order for them to be able to buy a portable infusion pump (CME Medical T34TM Ambulatory Syringe Pump) in memory of her late father John Parkins.
Emma’s father John was diagnosed with neck cancer, and when his condition deteriorated in the last weeks of his life he was looked after at Ravenstone Nursing Home. He was placed on the T34TM Pump in his last days in order to administrate pain relief without the interruption and discomfort of daily injections. Emma recalls that as soon as her father was placed on the pump she knew that he felt more comfortable.
Emma comments: “The staff at Ravenstone Nursing Home made my dad feel so comfortable as his condition deteriorated and a large part of this was due to the T34TM Pump. Once he was put on to the pump I could see an immediate change in him, he was more settled and his breathing became more regulated – I could tell he was more comfortable. If having the pump available means that another patient can have the comfort I witnessed my dad have, even if for a short amount of time, I know it will make so much of a difference. I want to thank CME Medical for designing and making the T34TM Pump. You can’t put a price on the comfort my Dad had.”
So far, Emma and her sisters Deborah Storey and Sarah O’Hara have managed to raise £1,120. With a number of additional fundraising activities in the pipeline, Emma and her sisters are not far off their £1,500 target, saying that if they exceed the amount they will aim to buy two T34TM Pumps for the nursing home.
