Back in October 2016 the Pink Ladies Football Teams, captained by sisters Kelly-Jo Karlaman and Deniz Hasret, raised a fantastic sum of 15,897.60TL from their sponsored football event. Both teams decided that they really would like some of the money raised to go towards buying something for the new Oncology Unit at Lefkosa State Hospital that would benefit the patients.
Treatment for cancer patients can be a very long drawn out affair, so it was decided that eight television sets would be purchased and installed in the Chemotherapy room and other resting rooms, to help entertain the patients whilst they are under going treatment.
On Tuesday, eight TV’s were finally unveiled to much appreciation by Mr Bulent Dizdarli (General Manager of the hospital) and Dr Ozlem who were both in attendance. Also present were Raziye Kocaismail and Engin Savim both from Tulips/HTWCA and a few of the ladies football team players; Kelly-Jo Karlaman, Deniz Hasret, Susie Forster, Sue Baker, Julie Taylor and Kimbo Sinclair.
Tulips would like to thank the Ladies Pink Football Teams for the support they have given to Tulips and to Cancer patients in the TRNC.
