Sharon's Story

Sharon is a Gold Coast resident who is travelling down to the Andrew Love Cancer Centre to take part in a clinical trial to best support her treatment.

Sharon and her husband Ken have been staying in the St Mary’s Apartments. The apartments are a free patient accommodation located across the road from University Hospital Geelong.

With the funds raised through Dry July, the team have been able to purchase new mattresses for all the beds of the rooms to ensure the beds are comfortable for patients and their families during their stay.

Providing a comfortable – “home-like” environment is really important for the apartments as patients will often spend quite some time here.

Sharon and Ken recently spent 11 nights in the apartment as part of Sharon’s treatment plan.
