Kenny's Kindness

Kenny’s Kindness

A kind-hearted local man has donated £500 to the Oncology Unit at Forth Valley Royal Hospital as a thank you for the care he has received from staff.

Kenny Ferguson, known in the local area for being the ‘Alpine Lemonade man’, was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in August 2016, despite never being a smoker. Sadly in December 2017, the cancer was found to have spread to his brain and Kenny is now in the care of Strathcarron Hospice.

Wanting to give something back, he generously reached in to his own pocket to donate to the Unit, to spend however they want.

He explained: “I just wanted to do something to say thank you. The treatment has been first class and all the staff, from the ladies who hand out teas, to the nurses and consultants, have been fantastic. They really do go the extra mile for you”.

Kenny is pictured presenting a cheque to Oncology Unit staff.
