We were all very saddened to hear of the passing of Lisa Day on Saturday evening, the 12th of September. Lisa was one of Imperial College London’s Clinical Trials Assistants who worked on the Bioresource study on the Wharfside clinic at the St. Mary’s campus; obtaining consents and blood samples for future HIV studies. In her short time here in the CTC, she contributed so much more than her contracted duties. She was never without a smile; never complained about the nagging issues that Imperial College and the Trust deliver to our daily working lives; never failed to contribute a personal story which made us smile and laugh in equal measures. Nursing has lost a professional it never realised it had.
Lisa was very excited to be furthering her education and to be embarking on a career within the profession of nursing at City University. She was due to start her studies this month. We’re trying to raise £2000 to create a nursing student bursary in memory of Lisa because we’d like someone to finish what she never got to; helping those nursing students who may be having some financial difficulty while obtaining their own degree – but in Lisa’s name.
Please pledge to her JustGiving crowdfunding page and help make it happen. If you know of anyone else who was touched by Lisa, please pass this on:
Thanks for your support.
