After discussion with the Oncology department at the Devlet (State) Hospital, the money will be spent on refurbishing one of the chemotherapy rooms. New comfortable chairs, side coffee tables and IV stands will be purchased and the room itself will be decorated to give it a relaxing and less clinical feel.

The Yaşam İçin Yarış Committee are currently working with the hospital to source the items before the refurbishment takes place.

On completion, there will be an official presentation and opening along with a full press release.
