Funds from our 2021 Dry July campaign will continuing to support Bendigo Health’s Cancer Centre Wellness Program and the range of programs on offer.

Bendigo Health’s Cancer Wellness Program along with the Gobbé Wellness Centre offer a place for patients to participate in wellness activities as well as a space where patients, carers or family members can retreat between or following treatment.

The Gobbé Wellness Centre is the new home of the Cancer Wellness Program, a purposed designed space for all patients needing to take time out in a quiet nurturing environment to reflect, relax and regroup.

Our dedicated Cancer Wellness Coordinator oversees the comprehensive timetable of activities through our Cancer Wellness Program, connecting our patients with a range of supportive services and complementary therapies such as oncology massage, yoga classes, music and art therapy, pet therapy and mindfulness sessions.

You can help by raising funds for Bendigo Health this Dry July so that we can continue to offer these valuable services to our local and regional patients.

The Cancer Wellness Program and Gobbé Wellness Centre would not be possible without ongoing donations and fundraising.

Update on patient accommodation refurbishment

Work is underway at the Bendigo Health Nolan Street Patient Accommodation.

Dry July funds gone towards the refurbishment.

This accommodation is used by patients that have to travel long distances to Bendigo to receive treatment.

Scalp Cooling Cap System

Bendigo Health is using Dry July 2016 funds towards the purchase of a scalp cooling system. The system will give chemotherapy patients the opportunity to significantly improve hair retention during treatment. It can result in a high level of retention or complete hair preservation for some patients, which can significantly improve self-confidence and dignity during a difficult time.

Nolan Street Renovation Update

On the 5th of May, Joel (Project Manager for the Nolan Street Unit renovations), Sharyn (Occupational Therapist) and Jane (Director - Bendigo Health Foundation) were fine tuning the renovation plans for the Nolan Street cancer accommodation to ensure they will have the best outcomes for everyone. The builders will start Mid-year and we look forward to posting some photo’s along the way.

Support for Accommodation Refurbishments

The Dry July Foundation awarded additional funding through a grant to Bendigo Health towards the Nolan Street Unit Refurbishment project in 2015.

The Foundation is pleased to be able to offer this additional support to ensure the renovations can be completed as soon as possible and benefit cancer patients, their carers and families, as they travel to Bendigo for treatment from around regional Victoria.
