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.
