Wellness Therapies at Liverpool Cancer Therapy Centre

Liverpool's Wellness Centre programs support adult cancer survivors and carers by offering a variety of activities to benefit individual needs. Funding from the 2015 Dry July Grant Program will enable the Centre to continue to offer courses such as yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and massage, following  a successful pilot program.

All of these programs serve as complementary therapies and exercises to conventional cancer treatment, and can help with strengthening and flexibility as well as reducing anxiety, pain, and fatigue.

These programs at the Liverpool Cancer Therapy Wellness Centre rely entirely on community support for funding.

UPDATE: Some of the feedback received from our patients attending the programs includes:

“The art session is very relaxing and meeting new people is so positive, especially when you are living with cancer. It’s wonderful to be able to come to such a positive uplifting activity with such a talented lady as Laurel."

"Zumba is such a fun way to exercise and to meet new people. The instructions are easy to follow the moves are great and I really enjoy both the dancing and the social aspects.” LM  

On the relaxation and meditation group…"The class is really good and I enjoy it very much.’"

"Everything is good. I feel comfortable at the centre, I enjoy the classes and the teacher.’"

On the yoga group... “Feeling relaxed after experiencing Pranayama breathing technique." Another patient said,  “I particularly like the pranayama breathing technique and asked to return for another session the following week.”


Mankinis for Dry July!

Earlier this month, Michael Pryce, Peter Durrington, and friends undertook a serious challenge in support of Dry July - a sober pub crawl! The group visited drinking holes in the Liverpool and Camden areas south of Sydney to raise funds for Liverpool Cancer Therapy Centre.

To draw attention and entice patrons to support the cause the men donned ‘mankinis’, sarongs and Dry July caps. Along the route they auctioned a lap dance for $405 and one of the guys even waxed his back in return for a $450 donation!

Dry July is a cause close to their hearts; Peter’s best mate sadly passed away from cancer after receiving treatment at LCTC. Peter is a Dry July lifetime highest fundraiser (second only to Adam Spencer), having raised over $100k for Dry July, supporting LCTC.

Michael, Peter and friends have raised over $6,000 so far and are aiming for $7,000 in total.

All-time highest fundraiser visits Liverpool Hospital

Earlier this year Peter Durrington and his wife Donna visited Liverpool Cancer Therapy Centre to see how Dry July funds have made a difference to patients. Since 2012, Peter has raised over $100k for Dry July.

Peter and Donna met Janet Heslep on the day. Janet is the new Wellness Program Manager at LCTC. Dry July funds have gone toward fitting out stage 1 of the Wellness Centre and toward wellness programs.

Barbeque Area at Liverpool Hospital

The outdoor area for the Cancer Services Interim Wellness Centre provides an area for patients to gather and attend support groups and also learn skills with outdoor BBQ cooking. The barbeque was purchased with funds from Dry July 2013.

Peter Durrington - Dry July Legend

On Saturday 21st June, ‘Frequent Dryer’ Peter Durrington held a Dry July Fundraiser in Camden in memory of his friend Scott Tully, who lost his battle with cancer in September 2013.

Peter is a Dry July Legend, in every sense of the word. He has been taking part in Dry July since 2012 and to date, he has raised over $70,000 for Liverpool Therapy Cancer Centre through Dry July, and his 2014 campaign has only just started!

Check out some photos from his 2014 fundraising event, and from all of us here at Dry July, we’d like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to Peter and Donna and all the work they do for Dry July.
