Dry July grant to benefit patients in the Macarthur region

We're proud to announce that Camden/Campbelltown Hospitals has received a grant from the Dry July Foundation.

The grant will go towards the following: 

• Patient Orientation Project to provide information about the Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre including medical services provided, parking for patients, billings, pharmacy costs, clinical trials and accessing patient transport when undergoing treatment

Bed ladders for access to equipment in the cancer centre

Dry July funds have been utilised to provide bed ladders to provide ease of access for patients receiving treatment at the cancer centres. The equipment eases the effort required for patients.

Acupuncture and Hypnotherapy at Macarthur CTC

Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre in Campbelltown has decided to use funds from Dry July toward continuing to provide patients with acupuncture and hypnotherapy services. These services were offered over the past 12 months but funding for these programs was not ongoing. These programs promote physical and emotional wellbeing for patients who are currently undergoing treatment for cancer.

MCTC is also again using a small amount of funding to decoration the centre during the festive season this Christmas (2016).

Holiday Decorations

Campbelltown and Camden Hospitals in NSW will use some money from Dry July to purchase holiday decorations for the MCTC. The aim is to make the centre a little more cheerful for patients receiving treatment at Christmas time.

New Chemotherapy Chairs

Macarthur Cancer Therapy Centre used funds from Dry July 2014 to purchase 8 new “lie-flat” powered chemotherapy chairs. Patients receiving chemotherapy treatment need to sit (or lie) in these chairs for up to 6 hours at a time, so these new chairs will help make patients a little more comfortable during their treatment.
