Local Hero

A touching tribute to the care given to her father by Chemotherapy Charge Nurse Fiona Galbraith, was applauded at a recent ceremony at Alva Academy .

Fiona was the winner of a Local Hero Award after pupil Amber Denham recorded her thanks. Recalling she was only three when her father was diagnosed in 2009, Amber explained: Fiona, the doctor and the oncology nurses saved my Dad’s life. Without Fiona and the rest of the team my little brother would not be here and my Dad wouldn’t be listening to this speech.

“Fiona’s professionalism has affected my family so much that there’s not enough boxes of chocolates in the world to say how thankful I am to Fiona and the team’s hard work and dedication.”
