Fiona Stanely Hospital receives a grant from the Dry July Foundation
We're proud to announce that Fiona Stanley Hospital has received a grant from the Dry July Foundation 2018 Grant Program.
The grant will go towards the following:
• Treatment Diaries, allowing patients and their families to track appointments and symptoms, improve communication, knowledge of treatments and encourage questions
2017 funds help patients keep on track
Funding from Dry July raised in 2017 has helped patients keep to their schedule. Patients have said that the diaries are a fantastic resource and that they like having one place to document questions, next treatments and track their side effects.
New & welcoming outdoor space for Fiona Stanley patients
Dry July funds will soon provide a new outdoor space on the balcony at the Fiona Stanley Cancer Centre. The current surface of the balcony makes it unsuitable for the use of patients, their friends and family. The resurfacing , shade-sails and new furniture will provide a comfortable and attractive outdoor space.
Tree of Hope Decal for cancer survivors
This Dry July funding has paid for a beautiful mural at Fiona Stanley Radiation Oncology ward.
Each patient completing treatment adds their own leaf to the tree on completion of their treatment. It's a wonderful visual representation of the successful outcomes that can be achieved with treatment and offers hope to those just starting their journey.
