On behalf of everyone at the Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre (BRICC) and Wellness Centre we wanted to thank you for participating in the Dry July challenge this year.
This year we raised an incredible $63,315! Over our 12-year history with the Dry July Foundation, this is our BEST YEAR YET!
We couldn’t not have achieved this result without your effort and dedication. Your participation in Dry July helps us to provide world-class cancer care and cancer support services, right here in Ballarat.
Your fundraising efforts ensures the ongoing provision of support and services offered by our Wellness Centre. The Wellness Centre is free for all patients in the Grampians region, regardless of where they are having treatment – ensuring everyone can access the support they require throughout their cancer treatment.
However, to fund this range of support services and programs, the Wellness Centre relies on community donations. Dry July is our biggest fundraising activity of the year. Your fundraising efforts have helped secure the provision of over 3000 appointments a year, and the priceless support offered by the centre.
Dry July funds also help us purchase equipment for the Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre, including our Chemotherapy Day Unit. We are the leading provider of public cancer treatment in the Grampians region. We are also a leader in cancer research, with over 100 clinical trials currently underway. These range from the role of T cells in cancer patients receiving vaccines, to the impact of exercise on clinical outcomes and specialist studies in lung, colon and breast cancer.
Your support of Dry July helps us provide the best-possible care to cancer patients in our region.
On behalf of Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre and Wellness Centre we would like to thank you for your support and contribution to making a positive difference in the lives of people living with cancer.
