A CONFERENCE in America is highlighting the work of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

Professor Ruth Plummer, director of the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre at Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital, has spoken at a conference in Chicago about the trials the centre is doing, along with others in the UK.

She said: “Clinicians like myself who work directly with patients see the benefits of the Foundation first hand and on a daily basis.

“It’s making a huge difference to the lives of people fighting cancer and that’s exactly what Sir Bobby hoped would happen when he set up this charity.”
